By Pastor Rick Warren Passion is what energizes life. It turns the impossible into possible.
To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy, when I cry to you for help, when I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.
Do not drag me off with the wicked, with the workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors while evil is in their hearts. Give to them according to their work and according to the evil of their deeds; give to them according to the work of their hands; render them their due reward.
Because they do not regard the works of the Lord or the work of his hands, he will tear them down and build them up no more. Pay careful attention to him and obey his voice; do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression, for my name is in him.
Therefore I beg you to listen to me patiently. They have known for a long time, if they are willing to testify, that according to the strictest party of our religion I have lived as a Pharisee. We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.

And the ministry God entrusted to them would change the world forever. Today’s devotion is excerpted from “Reigniting Your Passion for Christ” by Dr. Robert Jeffress, Quote from Dallas Willard, “The Divine Conspiracy” (New York: Harper, ), “Passion is waking up in the morning wherever you are and bounding out of bed because you know there’s something out there that you love to do, that you believe in, that God made you for and you’re good at, something that’s bigger than you are and you can hardly wait to get at it again.
God created you with the emotions to have passion in your life and He wants you to live a passionate life. Passion is what mobilizes armies into action. Passion is what causes explorers to boldly go where no man's gone before. You were made by God to be wild and fierce—and you can get your passion back by connecting with those who have it, and following God’s vision for your life.
