what are you passionate about?

What are you passionate about?  That is not always an easy question to answer, yet as we live our purpose and passion often becomes easy to see by others.  Go ask someone: what do you see that I am passionate about?

Answer a couple of big questions that may help you put a finger on what you are passionate about:

First, what do you love doing? Something you will do and leave others, people and stuff, behind to do.

Second, what pulls at your heart?  This is the stuff that you see around you that could be something like injustice or people hurting or a variety of other possibilities.

The past several years have defined what I am passionate about.  Through this learning process I have put feet to what God puts in front of me there seems to always be success when I admit and live as it is all about God.  Passion defines what we do.  It can be passion for the wrong things or for the right things.  Lets define my passion:

Matthew 22:37 NLT
Jesus replied, "'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.'

Loving God is much more than going to church or giving money.  It is having a personal, real relationship with Him.  It is time with God and more.

1 Peter 1:22 NLT
You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.

Loving people is a natural outcome of loving God.  Much of passion has to do with seeing people come closer to God.

What are you passionate about?  Live in that passion.  Thrive with that passion.  Let God fill you, and then let that passion flow to others who need to see God lived out.
