Selfish Ambition and enmity to God!!!

Our selfish Ambition is enmity to God. It causes constant friction and rebellion against God’s awesome predestined plans for us which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no heart has thought . Thoughts of the flesh continuously contradicts the thoughts of the Spirit of God. Resisting the spiritual process that makes us grow mature in tough circumstances may end up in senselessly aborting the Divine purpose of God that make us glorious and Christlike eternally.

So Apostle Jude said in Jude1:16-21, “These are inveterate murmurers (grumblers) who complain [of their lot in life], going after their own desires [controlled by their passions]; their talk is boastful and arrogant, [and they claim to] admire men’s persons and pay people flattering compliments to gain advantage. But you must remember, beloved, the predictions which were made by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. They told you beforehand, In the last days there will be scoffers [who seek to gratify their own unholy desires], following after their own ungodly passions. It is these who are [agitators] setting up distinctions and causing divisions–merely sensual [creatures, carnal, worldly-minded people], devoid of the Holy Spirit and destitute of any higher spiritual life. But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit; Guard and keep yourselves in the love of God; expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto life eternal”. – http://www.vjtraven.com
