Unshakeable Passion

(Matthew 16:18 NIV) “I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”

… Where people find a relationship with God instead of religion and where living for God is no longer a duty, it’s a delight.

God doesn’t just want a habit, He wants our hearts.

(Matthew 15:8-9 NIV) “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.”


(Romans 12:11 NIV) Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

 

(John 2:16-17 NLT) Then, going over to the people who sold doves, he told them, “Get these things out of here. Stop turning my Father’s house into a marketplace!” Then his disciples remembered this prophecy from the Scriptures: “Passion for God’s house will consume me.”

Three Areas of PASSION

1.    Passion for PRAYER.


(Matthew 21:13 NIV) “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’”

 

(James 5:16 KJV) The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Make prayer our first response, not our last resort.

 

2.    Passion for WORSHIP.

 

(Mark 12:30 NIV) Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”

 

(Romans 12:1 NIV) Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

 

(Hebrews 13:15 NIV) Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.

We give God what He deserves, not what we feel.


 

3.    Passion for PEOPLE.

 

(John 3:16 NIV) “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

 

(Acts 20:24 NLT) But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.

A life not lived for others is a life not well lived.
