Colossians 3:5 NAS
Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.
I used to watch the soap operas on television in my younger days. The days before I found outside employment and I stayed at home with my small children. Each day found one person or another in a hot passionate embrace with someone other than their spouse. This became common place and has steadily gotten worse over the years. One form of passion you might say.
Now when you pick up a magazine, newspaper, and even on television they have advertisements asking you what is your passion. Passionate about painting pictures, drawing, reading, gardening, or even scrap booking. Other forms of passion.
Passion, taken from a flip dictionary, means adoration, amour, anger, appetite, ador, craving, craze, dedication, desire, devotion, distress, love, lust, obsession, and there are numerous other words to describe it.
My passion is for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I never knew how good it felt to be able to follow Him. To be able to praise Him for all He has does in my life and the lives of my family. I want to shout it to the highest mountain My God Reigns. He is awesome, an all knowing God, and full of grace. I cannot do enough for Him.
Colossians 3:2 tells us to set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. Because you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Yes I'm passionate, passionate for Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Father thank you for Your son Jesus. Amen.
