Is it wrong for Christians to desire fame?

fame and the christian

Is the desire to be famous wrong for Christians to have?

What does it say about our hearts?

“I want to be famous so that I can use MY INFLUENCE for the Lord.”

This sounds good and noble on the onset but focus on the statement “so I can use MY INFLUENCE for the Lord.”

It is not wrong to use one’s influence for kingdom purposes but desires like these need to be filtered at the heart level. Are we really bent on making the Lord known or are we merely using Him as a vehicle for us to be known? Are we forgetting the fact that God is God and if He wants to MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN, He can do so? He can use people like you and me, but that is His discretion. We cannot command Him and say “God, MAKE ME FAMOUS, so I can make you known.”

Who are we to dictate upon God, OUR STRATEGY? Is He not God who can do all things and knows all things?
