Moody Publishers Holy Ambition: Turning God-Shaped Dreams into Reality

If the idea of walking with Jesus doesn't make you uncomfortable, you haven't thought seriously enough about His presence in your life. The passed-down, packaged Jesus turns out to be quite different from the one who steps alive and kicking out of the pages of Scripture. Author, pastor and radio teacher Chip Ingram outlines what it takes to follow this renegade Jesus toward the idea of Holy Ambition. Stretching outside of your comfortable existence is just the beginning. Dislocated hearts and broken spirits give way to radical, faith-filled strategies that equip you to truly make a difference for God right now.

This book starts with a biblical premise that all too often is taken out of context based on 2 Chronicles 16:9a so that it is a comforting statement when within its context it shows how one king of Israel created problems for himself. Weaving this verse throughout the book and using Nehemiah as his biblical basis and example, Mr. Ingram carefully shows Christians why they walk in weakness rather than in the full strength that is available to them as they seek to develop holy ambition in their lives. Each chapter explains and illustrates the aspects of the development of holy ambition and gives careful instruction as to how to implement them in our lives. Using plenty of biblical illustrations and evidences, as well as personal experiences through his pastoral experience and the lives of others, he not only shows us how to get onto the path but how to continue on this path to Christlikeness and service to the Lord. This book will challenge the hearts and lives of the reader to a deeper walk with the Lord.

I had a vision and had no problem with the weekly homework until we reached a certain point in the study and then I began to see that my answers didn't match my vision. I had been talking to a co-worker about how we sometimes talk ourselves into believing our vision is really God's. The video at this lesson and all the questions pointed at the fact that I was trying to force my vision on God and I had to begin the study again with God's abmition as my focus and not mine.
