Don’t let another person’s lack of passion determine your passion!
As He came near to Jericho, it occurred that a blind man
was sitting by the roadside begging.
And hearing a crowd going by, he asked what it meant.
They told him, Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.
I was challenged by the blind man in this passage of scripture.
He was blind and needed, desperately needed a touch from God!
What challenged me was his passion. It was raw, uncensored,
As a Christian in today’s world can we follow Christ with a tame,
steril passion, if you can call it that?
The blind man’s passion made people around him uncomfortable.
Look at what the word says,
And he shouted, saying Jesus, Son of David, take pity and have
mercy on me!
But those who were in front reproved him, telling him to keep
quiet; yet he screamed and shrieked so much the more, Son of
David, take pity and have mercy on me!
Luke 18:38, 39
He screamed and shrieked so much the more!!
Jesus was passing by and there was nothing and nobody who
would stop him from getting a touch from Him.
We need that kind of raw, untamed, uncensored passion
if we are going to make our life count for Christ.
Jesus is passionately in love with us so how can we give Him
Let us not allow other people to dictate how passionate we should
Let us be passionate about our Lord.
He is the one after all who gave His life for us!
I want my passion to get His attention don’t you?
I want to live out my passion for Him and not just talk
He is my everything and deserves nothing but the best!
Let us follow the example of the blind man!
Bless you friends!!
