"For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me"(Psalms 69:9).

It has been proven that everyone has passion for one thing or another and the question is where does that passion lie and where will it lead you to?

"When passion is lost progress is hindered."

There are people who are so passionate about sports that you dare not speak ill about their team in their presence. They can borrow money to watch a match and even miss church meetings because their team is playing.
This same persons when it comes to God they are not very interested, they are lackadaisical towards God. They are to be forced to come to church, pray and study their Bible daily. This happens because they don't have passion for God like they do for sport.

Let's look at what happens when a person is passionate for sport:

1. He loves His team: One of the driving force of someone who is passionate for sport is that He likes his team and most especially key persons in the team. Most  Barcelona fans love Barcelona because of Lionel Messi. They love their team and Lionel Messi even when Messi and his team don't even know If they exist lol. These fans are ready to defend Messi and his team even at their own cost. They  are willing to sacrifice their time, family, business, resources, health and even God for their team.

"You can't love without giving but you can give without loving".

Passion for God is developed when you know that God loves you and that you and God are an unbeatable team. You can't love God to the extent of fighting for Him, He will do the fighting and you will do the resting on Him. Look at Jesus the super star hero who gave His life for you so you can have and live a better life to the glory of God.
Your passion for God only comes alive when you love God and you can only love God when you have received His love and this you do receive everyday it is the  acknowledgment of this that makes a man born again.
Your sacrifice for God and His kingdom is a proof of your passion for him. Letting go of sinful lifestyle, the dominion of the flesh, presenting your body to God as instrument of righteousness and  allowing the Holy Spirit lead you.

2. He talks about his team: A man passionate for sport will talk about his team at any given opportunity. I have seen roommates who will give up their study time just to talk about how their team is better than another. They spend time debating with other persons about the uniqueness of their team. They know the names of all the players, the coach and  even personal information about their favorite teams.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek"(Romans 1:16).

Passion for God is developed when you spend time in fellowship with God in prayers, bible study/ meditation. It is the knowledge and revelation you have received from God that you can boldly talk about. You can't talk about God when you don't know Him and His plans for your life. The more you invest time in intimacy with God the more passionate you are for Him. He will make you passionate by the power of the Holy Spirit living in you. This is what makes you bold to share the gospel with people, you know how much God loves you and how  much He loves sinners and wants them to repent you can't help but talk to them about receiving Jesus Christ into their lives.

" Passion for God is the most profitable passion in time and in eternity " Paul Enenche.

3. They love to watch their team play: No matter how poorly performed a team has been during a league, a man passionate for his team will go and watch his team play. On Wednesday Chelsea lost a 3-0 to Barcelona; you should come and see how some Chelsea fans on Thursday in class where defending and also being proud of their team despite the scorn they received.
"And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us" (Romans 5:5).

Dear, passion for God is developed when you love to be in God's presence, yes you love to come to fellowship and watch God transform your life as you yield to Him. Go to church just like you will not be forced going to watch your favorite team play. Be committed to the things of God, because it is what is most important in life.  No matter the challenges of life you cling to God because he can't fail you like your football team. He is too faithful to fail.
Don't be shy if people call you God freak, I prefer to be God freak than any other thing freak. Don't be passionate about things more than the God that made those things. Don't love fashion, sport, education etc, more than you love God; this is what God calls idolatry - allowing something to take the place of God in your life.

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33)
It is my prayer that from today you will receive a fresh passion for God in Jesus might name.Amen.
Jesus Christ gives passion, you can be passionate by yourself you have to depend on Him to fill you with so much passion and the things of the kingdom.

"Your Passion for God determines your portion in God." Paul Enenche.

Come before your loving Father, He loves you more than you think you can love Him.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ and experience His love for you by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .
Amen .

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
