If it were only hunger for significance, we might be able to at least hold this craving at bay by a good dose of discipline and a depth of resolve. But to complicate matters, the significance addiction is aided and abetted by the phenomenally powerful trio surging inner energies called pleasure, pride, and passion. This trio moves within each of us, creating partnerships of power that can corrupt and devastate even the best of us. If left in their pre-redemptive flow, these forces render us incapable of advancing the significance of Christ and His kingdom.
