What does Passion involve? Matt 13:44-45
What am I passionate about?
– What do I desire?
– What direction is my life going?
– What am I disciplining myself to reach?
Passion is directed towards… Matt22:37-39, 28: 18-20
Person of Jesus
Purpose of the Great Commission
People in church and outside
How is Passion lost?
– Cools down
– Calloused Conscience
How is Passion reloaded? 1John 1:9-10
Face up to the truth
Family of God
Faithfulness of God
Forgiveness of God
All these can be showed by Paul’s passion for Christ in Philippians 2:1-2.
Today’s was the first CF meeting for NIC CF as it was the opening of May semester 2005. I know I was busy with so many other things till I almost neglected CF. Thank God I didn’t neglect CF. Why? Because I felt that I had the passion once again to serve more in the Lord’s kingdom. I know I am tied down with work, studies, assignments and family affairs but this will not stop me from serving Lord. No way am I going to halt my service for the Lord. I know the mental breakdown earlier last week was something tearing me apart. Nevertheless, today I skipped my work [gonna replace it on Friday]; because I wanted to make the best PowerPoint slides of Annoucements in CF. Yup, I spent 2 hours in the afternoon doing that. Maybe the passion was there. Who says even I am busy I can’t serve Him? I am not going to stop serving Him and now I don’t need to fear any thing which comes my way because I know my God will be up for me. If God is with me, who dares to be against me?
I was playing the keyboard for Jessica today. Even though it’s two action songs and two worship songs, somehow I was touched by the presence of God when we were worshipping Him. Though my fingers were busy playing the keys, but I was so deeply moved by the Holy Spirit to sing out the voice He has blessed me with to Him. Furthermore, CF’s attendance today was beyond my expectation and I was even happier to see the crowd worshipping Him in one voice.
We had lots of newcomers. Catherine, Kian, Chong, Serene, Joy 1, Joy 2, Olivia and etc. I can’t remember all of them because I don’t have a genius memory. Somehow we also had visitors from California. Robyn, Monica, Asia, Jennifer, Jay and Mrs Mobley were here in the college for 4 days- visit. Thanks to Sunny, we had a good ice breaker of entangling ourselves within minutes. But the impact came in with the Word of God. Mr. Gan Eng Hong, Vice President (Administration) of the college once again bombarded the CF with a good speech on Passion Reloaded. It really knocks at my heart telling me that I am reloading myself with passion once again. Just like how we always reload our Hotlink or Digi lines.
The outlines above this were the speech given Mr. Gan. I guess it the outlines will be a guide line for those who are reading this entry. And if you are searching for the lost passion inside you, I guess this may help you. Even if you’re not, I hope this may allow you to strengthen your bond with Him and continue to uphold your passion for Him.
I really want to challenge you guys out there. Dare to be different for Christ, ok?
