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.
