Developing or renewing PASSION for our Lord Jesus is a process. It is a journey. It is an adventure. It is a necessity. Yes, a necessity. We will never survive the onslaught of temptations and detours of life without a personal, vibrant relationship with Christ Jesus. We will never survive on our Pastor’s faith. We will never survive counting on the faith of our parents, teachers, youth leaders or spiritual mentors.
We must ‘own’ our faith. It has to be ‘ours’. It must be vibrant, fresh, legitimate, bathed in prayer and led by the eternal Word of God.
“P”: Purposeful Pursuit
“A”: Absolute Abandon
“S”: Stunning Surrender
“Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it.” Matthew 16:24-25
