Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. Lamentations 3:40

Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop?” Matthew 5:14
Passion is the ultimate apologetic

Passion is the active ingredient to helping people take their NEXT STEPS

Live such good lives among the pagans that they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. I Peter 2:12
Passion is how love is expressed

Loving me empowers you to obey my commands. John 14:15

· > Dream about it
· > Internal excitement – external expression
· > Sacrifice for it
· > Invest into it
· > Inconvenienced by it

These people honor me with their lips but their hearts are far from me. Matthew 15:8

Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and the king took them. Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. 19 The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times.” II Kings 13:18-19

There will be such an increase of sin and lawlessness that those hearts once burned with passion for God…will grow cold. Matthew 24:12
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
I was forty years old when Moses sent me to explore the land… I followed the Lord my God wholeheartedly. Now, then, just as the Lord promised, he has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the desert. So here I am today, eight-five years old! I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out…now give me this hill country…I will drive them out. Joshua 14:7-12
In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army… But David remained in Jerusalem. One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. II Samuel 11:1-2

Create a new, clean heart within me. Fill me with pure thoughts and holy desires, ready to please you. Let my passion for life be restored. Psalm 51:10-12
We lose sight of Grace

Apathy of others


Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33

Yet I hold this against you: you have forsaken your first love.Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. Revelation 2:4-5

“Passion for God’s house will consume me.” John 2:17

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s spirit lives within you?
I Corinthians 3:16
He was so kind, so gracious to me.Because of his passion toward me,
he made everything right and he restored me. Psalm 116:5
