Be Passionate About It! (2)

"I felt a fire burning inside."     Psalm 39:3 CEV

David wrote: "I felt a fire burning inside, and the more I thought, the more it burned, until at last I said: 'Please, Lord, show me my future'" (vv. 3-4 CEV).  Passion is like fire; unless you feed it and stoke it, it will die.  Question: On a scale of one to ten, how wholehearted are you about serving the Lord?  Before you answer, think about these Scriptures: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart...all your soul and...all our strength" (Deuteronomy 6:5 NIV).  "Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart" (Psalm 119:2 NIV).  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5 NIV).  "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13 NIV).  "Fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you" (2 Timothy 1:6 NIV).  "'Return home and tell how much God has done for you.'  So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him" (Luke 8:39 NIV).  "Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church" (1 Corinthians 14:12 NIV).  "To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me" (Colossians 1:29 NIV).  "Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:13-14 NIV).  All these Scriptures can be reduced to one sentence: Be passionate about what God has called you to do.
