There is such a thing as kingdom fame. Not all famous people are worldly or unsaved. There are men and women of God who are known for their impact in their world and the lives of thousands and millions that they touch and transform by the ministry God has placed in their hands.
There is a lot of negative connotation to fame. It is true that a lot of famous people are unsaved but that does not mean that God doesn’t want His people to be known for Him, God wants people to be saved and if the world has to be saved, God’s children have to bring Him glory and some have to be in a ministry where the world can easily see them. For example those in the singing ministry. Kingdom fame is a good thing, it is not a sin.
God was with Joshua, and that was what made him famous, not because he was a womanizer or a thief, but because God was with him. That means his fame was ordained and initiated by God. God wanted Joshua to be seen and wanted His greatness to be seen in him as he wants for us too.
Also note there could be some ministries that tend to not be on the limelight as some others, for example, you will likely take note of the chorister and you might not know that the person sitting next to you is responsible for the decoration of the Church. But God can use whatever ministry He has put in your hands to make you famous for Him. God also knows that fame could bring some people down so not everyone is in the limelight.
Don’t be afraid of stepping out to use your talents for God because of fear of worldly fame. As you go on ask God to help you not to fall. Remember, He is for you and not against you.
Prayer: Lord, I come to you today, use me for Your glory, do whatever you want to do with me, even if it means making me famous for Your kingdom. Lord I ask that You give me grace to keep the faith and not fall by the way side. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen!.
