Holy Ambition

The saints provide a great example for us, but their holiness can oftentimes seem so great as to be unattainable.  Yet saints are made and not born.  What is the road that they traveled to heaven?  Though they are known for their joy, they were people who were happy but not content with what they had.  At the foundation of everything was a thirsting for God that manifested itself in an ambition to love and serve completely.
