Day 40: Passionate Suffering


I have PASSION

that sometimes can be a wee bit too

PASSIONATE

as when I am on my soapbox

the Italian gets the best of me~

and you better watch out

because my PASSION can be a wee bit too

PASSIONATE

when I am standing up for TRUTH and nothing but the TRUTH.

PASSION~

Zeal.

Fervor.

Suffering.

Yes, SUFFERING

is the meaning of the word

PASSION

that defines this week

JESUS was riding into

as HE entered on a donkey.

PASSION~

SUFFERING with GRACE & TRUTH.

Oh THE PASSION of CHRIST.

PASSION WEEK~

The week JESUS walks

PASSIONATELY to the CROSS

doing what no other could ever do

with such

GRACE

&

MERCY

because

of

HIS PASSIONATE LOVE

for ALL.

Oh JESUS had PASSION~

"JESUS began to explain to HIS disciples that

HE must go to Jerusalem

and SUFFER many things..."

But how was JESUS able to be PASSIONATE about SUFFERING~

"....and that HE must be killed and on the third day be raised to life" (Matthew 16:21)

Because

HIS eyes were on you & I & everyone else

who HE PASSIONATELY

loves like no other~

“I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down HIS life for the sheep" (John 10:11)

What are you PASSIONATE about?

Would you go to great lengths

even if it means PASSION is a SUFFERING SACRIFICE~

"But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before GOD.

To this you were called, because CHRIST suffered for you,

leaving you an example, that you should follow in HIS steps" (I Peter 2:20)

Are you ready to do what it takes

to continue to

Press Forward in following JESUS to the Cross?

Let's get

PASSIONATE~

"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the LORD JESUS, giving thanks to GOD THE FATHER through HIM" (Colossians 3:17)

because

PASSION put JESUS on the CROSS

so that we can

put JESUS on our hearts

to experience how WEIGHTLESS

life becomes when we

are so PASSIONATE about our JESUS

that it becomes all about

HIM so that we are able to

BE WAITLESS~MOVING FORWARD

in PASSION with PASSION

because of

HIS PASSIONATE

"RECKLESS LOVE" (listen to the song below)
