Directed and Produced by Bryan Kreutz
Original Airdate Aug 23,2010 on the Christian Television Network
When we are passionate about God and his people God can do great things through us.
All of what God does is hanging on love. We can get Passionate about football, baseball, and even politics at times, Melissa referring to herself states "I have to reign myself in sometimes. "I'm not a politician, I'm a Christian somebody that's a disciple of the lord and I want my passions to reflect him (God)". We want our passion as first place in our life. Some of us live for their sports. There is nothing wrong with watching the next Hockey game that comes on TV or going from one sport to the next. However if sports or politics for example consumes your life and supersedes what you are passionate for over the lord than something else has your focus and attention. God wants our whole attention and whole heart with a passion and desire. When we are passionate for God we are the chief benefactors when we walk in that and we are the ones who receive the greatest benefit. Matthew 22:37 "Jesus said love the lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. This is the most important the first on any list but there is a second set alongside it love others as you love yourself" We see how we can function in life and walk in liberty we are in bondage because of our own desires. When we desire God that’s when we experience a place of freedom God has plans to bless us, prosper us, and give us a future and a hope. Unless we are passionate for him (God) were not going to receive those plans if we don't mix it with the faith that God has thus we don't have faith unless we get into his presence. Were to be separate from the world we don't have eyes for the world we have eyes for God which is a beneficial separation. The grace of God turns every commandment into a promise.
