The Real Meaning of Passion

If someone were to ask you what you're passionate about, what would you say?

Me?

I'm passionate about
  • Family
  • Spreading God's love by my actions
  • Sharing God with others through my writing
  • Singing and worshipping
  • Justice
Want to know what God would say He's passionate about?
  • You
  • Me
  • All of us, even those you can't stand
How do I show my passion?
  • I spend time with those I love.
  • I work hard to show God's love, by being deliberate about serving, by spending time improving my craft.
How did God show His passion?
  • He gave up a throne for us.
  • He took responsibility for stuff He didn't do.
  • He challenged the status quo for our sakes.
  • He met us -- meets us -- where we are.
  • He died a brutal death.
I think I know what passion is, but I honestly have no clue.

Except this. GOD defines passion.
In fact, He is passion itself.

  2. I'm passionate about Christ and showing who He really is to the world. I'm passionate about my husband and children, about my extended family and friends, about my community, about history and about writing. One thing I'm very passionate about it helping people find their gift. I love a life lived through the power and passion of a God-given gift. All good and perfect gifts are from above. God wants us to operate in those gifts to change the world.
