Passion (John 17:1-4)

Pastor Joe Sanders, October 17, 2010
Part of the Do Something - Make Your Life Count series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Passion is an interesting word that gets misused a lot in our culture. Not only do we desperately want to live a life of meaning, we want to live that life passionately. Unfortunately its come to take on either a completely unhealthy physical/sexual connotation or some big idea that we really don't think we can aspire to and reach. We are built to be passionate people, but what are we passionate for? Where are our passions to be directed? When we discover what our ultimate passion is to be, we are able to live passionately and do the big things that God has given us to in his Kingdom for his glory. Jesus modeled that kind of passion for us and we can live with that same kind of passion ourselves, instead of for lesser things.

John 17:1-4

1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. (KJV)
