In some ways many Biblical figures experienced a kind of fame in their lives. In the case of Christ, we can see several instances of him pursuing contemplative and prayerful isolation, and this can perhaps be a signal to those Christians who attain great public recognition. At the same time, I think we can all agree that attaining public recognition should never be the primary impetuous for any decision a Christian makes, so if any of us manage to attain public recognition, it would behoove us to examine closely our motives and incentives.
