Colossians 3:23 – And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
Reigniting your passion for the things of God holds great benefits for the believer. Clearly the text above addresses the way in which we do things in our Christian walk; “not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit.” “Do it heartily as to the Lord.”
Consider the follow further benefits of ignited passion:
1. It gives you energy for living your life.
• Passion creates energy; an unenergetic life is a passionless life.
2. It brings the impossible into the realm of possibility.
• Many of the feats once thought to be impossible have been achieved by persons with great passion.
3. It gets and keeps you moving daily.
• Sometimes all we need is just more days of forward motion to breakthrough to our victory.
4. Passion will attract needed resources.
• People want to add insight and skill to something pursued with passion.
5. Passion causes you to persevere.
• Passion can enable us to take it and make it in difficult times.
6. It is the womb of improvement.
• Passionate people don’t settle for good when better is available.
My friend, ask God to reignite your passion and become His tool of doing the same for others. Let your passion become contagious.
Peace and blessings!
