Passion and Compassion

 

Sharing another thought in the process of our newest book Filled with Grace ~ Wrapped in Glory.

What is the result of “Christ in you ~ the hope of glory?” Colossians 1:27

When we understand the dynamics of a supernatural relationship with Jesus Christ, we live with a passion for Him. That heavenly, spiritual relationship has an effect on our earthly relationships with others.

His passion for us and our passion for Him ~ Filled with His Grace ~ causes an overflow. Passion turns to compassion for others. It is all initiated by the Lord ~ from our head to our heart and through our hands, others know of Him.

It is the power of His Spirit and Word through us that draws others to HIm.

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer to every man
that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you
with meekness and fear:”

1 Peter 3:15

“As every man hath received the gift,
even so minister the same one to another,
as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” 
1 Peter 4:10

Dear Father, whose name is to be hallowed, whose kingdom is continually coming and your will being done in us as your children ~ pour out the Spirit of Christ upon your people; draw us to Him through your Word and speak to others through us. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

    1. If you mean final judment, I do not know. End times is not a subject I pursue. Christ is my only pursuit, whenever the judgment may be. Judgment has already come upon the world through Christ. We see it daily.

  1. This is encouraging. Had a late night counseling with someone suicidal and I can only preach the Word as if lives depend on it (and it does). Thank you also for your prayers about my foot!
