Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
~ Romans 12:11, KJV ~
What are you passionate about? What gives you motivation? What are you committed too? Being a mindful and thoughtful Christian, we want to explore the very reason to live life to its fullest. Keeping the Lord at the center – we move with passion and determination. Christ was passionate about the people around him. He was passionate about serving and walking in obedience. He displayed genuine and authentic passion in His ministry. Despite the struggles, challenges, and obstacles that came His way – He faced mortal life with zeal, compassion, love, and a passion to live each day.
For us, we feel that our zealousness slowly fades away with each inevitable struggle. If that is the case – maybe it is time to slow down, to take a sabbath, find ways to be grateful for what you have, and above all else, pray to our Heavenly Father. And, if worry and fear has weighted you down some – pray with great intensity and passion to seek God’s divine grace that will renew your soul.
Our relationship with Jesus Christ. Our relationship with the Father. Our relationship with ourselves and others give us the motivation and adventure we need to find fulfillment in life. Passion brings into our lives a sense of fulfillment.
~ Today’s Prayer and Meditation ~
Heavenly Father, renew my spirit and my passion for life. Through my love, my heart speaks a solemn testimony of my faith in you. As I walk in obedience, let my passion and zeal for your love and grace be worthy. Let me walk in assurance of my faith and my actions direct others toward your grace and infinite love. In Jesus Name, Amen.
