Everybody wants to be somebody.

I find we live in a world where everybody wants to be somebody. Most people want to do something significant and have some sort of impact in the world. The Christian sub-culture world is a little bit like that as well. Everyone thinking that they have something important to say that others just *must* hear. All of these folk that are seeking to be unique in the way they approach faith all end up sounding eerily similar.

Let us give up the pursuit of mans approval and truly seek out the approval of Christ. Let us go low in humility, becoming nothing. Let us seek nothing but Christ and his kingdom, and count all else as loss. 

Everyone wants to be somebody, but I think what we need is more nobodies.

Grace and peace.
