The Yearning for Popularity

“But there is a danger in our desire to do big things for God, for our pursuit of success dovetails with a powerful American temptation: the appeal of celebrity.  These days, obscurity is the worst kind of failure.  When we do something significant, we expect to be rewarded with popularity.” (Brandon O’Brien, The Strategically Small Church, 27)

“How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” (Jesus, John 5:44)
