Ambition is related to a goal.  Thus, there are two potential uses, or application, of ambition: towards goals set by and for the self…or toward goals set for us by God.

There is selfish ambition (Romans 2:8; Philippians 1:17; James 3:14, 16), and then there is godly ambition (2 Corinthians 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:11).

Therefore, we who follow Christ do not divest ourselves of ambition; rather, we redirect our ambition from worldly pursuits to righteous pursuits –  that is, the seeking of righteousness.
