March 4, 2019 – What Is Your Passion?

What I read today;

Exodus 19; 1 Kings 21-22; Psalm 63; Isaiah 63; Acts 1; Hebrews 1-2

If you ever watched Pete Rose play baseball, you knew you were watching a man who lived for the game.  Walter Payton and Jerry Rice were men who lived to play football.  Dean Karnazes is a man who started running in his early 30’s and today years later has run in some of the most daunting ultra-marathon races around the world.  Running is truly his passion.

What’s your passion?  What do you live for?

The Psalmist describes his passion in this way;

Psalm 63 vs. 1-8, “O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.  So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.  Because our steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.  So I will bless you as long as I live;  in your name, I will lift up my hands.  My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed and meditate on you in the watches of the night; for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.  My soul clings to you;  your right hand upholds me.”  ESV

So I’ll ask you again, what are you passionate about?
