Awhile back the army had a catchy jingle designed to encourage people to sign up for duty. The song included these lyrics: “…be all that you can be… in the army”. This reasoning sounds good, and appeals to our human need for significance. However, the end result is somewhat self-centered in essence; it’s all about you and what you can become for you rather than what you can become that will contribute to a higher cause. Paul invites us to greatness using a similar idea but with a far different focus. His determined purpose is to be his utmost for Christ’s highest, and he encourages us to the same goal; be all that you can be for Christ and His kingdom.
