Chase That (Ambition)

Watch this video of Lecrae’s song: Chase That (Ambition). The video has all the lyrics in it. Pay attention to them.

Lecrae’s songs have been preaching to me, especially this one! What a reality check. Have you been there? So consumed in our own journey of becoming big that we forget that our main purpose is to make God big?

We should always be checking out motives for why we are doing what we do. Why do I have this job? What I am pursuing with my life? Why do I do ____?

My prayer is that God will always pluck out my impure motives for doing things. God, help me forget about me, my journey, what I want, my dreams, my goals . . . and let me replace all of them with Your journey, what you want, Your dreams, Your goals for my life.

He must increase . . . I must decrease (John 3:30)

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? -Matthew 16:24-26
