Freedom from Selfish Ambition

“Paul doesn’t care about personal popularity. That’s not what motivates him. Instead, he cares about the message of Jesus going into the entire world. He knows that Jesus himself had insiders who opposed him, and Paul knows that God reigns and will accomplish his plans regardless of the motivations of his messengers. This is enough for him.

A world without jealousy, without payback, without one-upmanship, one in which you really do have to die to your puffed up ego in order to live—no one could have imagined or invented such a world. But Paul is living in it, and he invites all of us to go deeper in with him.”

– Ed Welch, Bad Motives? No Problem.
