Renewed Passion For Christ
God is passionate about His love for you. Zephaniah 3:17 says, “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” God loves you so much He sings over you. He is so passionate about you that He sent Jesus to save you. And He wants you to be passionate in your love for Him. Do you need to see an increase in your passion for God?
There’s nothing that Satan loves more than a passionless Christian! If your faith has become routine and you’ve lost your passion, it’s time to change that. Don’t live another day of dull, routine, passionless Christianity.
Seven passion killers and what keeps you from having that constant passion for the Lord.
1. An unbalanced schedule
2. An unused talent
3. An unconfessed sin
4. An unresolved conflict
5. An unsupported lifestyle
6. An unclear purpose
7. An undernourished spirit will kill your passion.
Restoring a Burning Passion For God
1 John 4:7-21
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
Here are three steps to experiencing an increase in your passion for God:
1. Make up your mind that you are going to regain your passion. There’s power in a made-up mind. Decide today that nothing will keep you from experiencing increase in your passion for God.
2. Confess that you have lost your passion. You’d be surprised at how many Christians walk around in denial about their situation. Going through religious motions can dull your spiritual senses and blind you to your own condition. But God can open your eyes! If your joy is gone, if your dreams have died, if you have lost your passion, confess it to God today. You may also want to confess it to someone who can pray with you as you find your way back to the passion God wants you to have.
3. Take action. God will do His part to increase your passion, but He also expects you to do your part. When you declare a fast and set aside time to pray, you are taking the first step toward seeing your passion, enthusiasm and joy increase.
