Passion is the word I believe is for our church in 2017. This is the year that passion is going to be planted in the hearts of people. Most people when they think of passion they think of lots of emotion. That certainly is passion. But passion is bigger than that and I don’t think that is the primary meaning the Lord has for us.
One of the definitions in the Merriam-Webster dictionary for passion is
“an object of desire or deep interest”.
I believe this year is going to be the year we set our hearts and minds on Jesus as our number one pursuit and desire.
I believe we are going to make up our minds that He is everything and has everything that is ours.
I believe we are going to set once and for all that we will follow no other and everything is His.
I believe we will exit 2017 with a passion for living and serving God like never before. Not because we feel convicted to but because we desire to live no other way.
Joshua 24:15 then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD.”
