I had the blessing of sitting with a friend of mine the other day who was so excited that he went on for several minutes about what is going on in his life. He finally paused and apologized for going on and on, but he said that he was just so excited about how his business was going and how God was working in his life.
What excites you? The answer reveals your area of passion. Let’s be real here. You may be thinking about men, women, drinking, drugs, sex, partying, accomplishment at work, money, politics, sports, exercise, spirituality, and the list goes on. This reveals where your heart is.
I would be foolish to think that everyone that reads my posts is on the up and up in every area of your life. There are things you only reveal to certain people and other things you hide (especially from someone like me who happens to be an ordained minister because you think whatever you think about me). I cannot send you to hell and I cannot do anything but try to guide you in the ways of God because I care about your life. What you do is your business, but all of our actions have consequences.
Back to my title – What are you passionate about? That is what will consume your speech and your calendar. Is it time to be passionate about something new? This is for you to honestly evaluate and answer for yourself.
If your areas of passion honor God, I want to leave you with this Scripture. This drove my life when I surrendered to the call to ministry. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-24 NIV
