As I sit down to write this morning, I wonder if what I'm going to say is actually true for my life. I don't want to be a hypocrite.
Yesterday, our church youth pastor got up to tell about the special worship service taking place on Wednesday night, just inviting people to come and giving us a tiny taste of what the evening was going to be like. One mid-twenties guy is going to be sharing His testimony. I don't know what has gone on in his life, but it was evident that he is so in love with Jesus that he is "bursting at the seams." His passion was contagious.
I wonder how many of us are "bursting at the seams" with Jesus. Have we given way to a ho-hum attitude about God, or are we so full of Him that we can't help but bubble over with His love and excitement?
People can tell.
Are you going to live a life of passion and excitement?
"I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm- neither hot nor cold- I am about to spit you out of my mouth." -Revelation 3:15-16
How do we acquire this "bursting at the seams" passion? I know for me, there's so much out there to distract me from what is really important.
Are we pursuing God with our whole hearts? Are we putting Him first in our lives? You can't love someone that you don't know.
Everyday, we have choices to make. Are we going to grow in our relationship and passion or are we going to choose to live for other things.
"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." -Matthew 6:24
