I feel like this one needs a disclaimer. Please do not misunderstand, I am not discussing politics. However, with the recent elections, I have seen some very passionate posts on every side. People have picked their candidate and no matter what anyone says, they will stand by that candidate. When you even mention the word politics, people get ready to defend their position.
That level of passion is commendable. My question is why will we not be that passionate about Jesus. He died for our sins. He walks with us daily. He gives us a peace that surpasses all understanding. He desires to have a personal relationship with us.
When it comes to passion, I want to be passionate about Jesus. About a love that covers sin. A love that was marred more than any man. A love that walks with you. A love that died so that you would have the opportunity to accept the free gift of eternal life.
I want to spend my time telling the world that there is a better way. That a life with God is worth it. That love is the only thing that can combat hate. Put down your hate. It is too big a burden to bear. Choose love. Choose Jesus. Drive out the darkness in your life with the light.
Be passionate. This world needs love.
