God First

Loving Jesus with passion experiences God as someone important in Himself, meaningful in Himself, whether or not He performs for us.

He said, "I came naked from my mother's womb, and I will be naked when I leave. The LORD gave m what i had, and the LORD has taken it away. Praise the name of the LORD!" (Job 1:21)

As the foundation-laying event of salvation, the very life of God-eternal life-entered us. We must live out that very God-life.

And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. (1 John 5:11)

A Passionate Life

The passionate life involves living the God-life for God, life by God.

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God, who is the Savior of all people and particularly of all believers. (1 Timothy 4:10)

Love. That's soul passion in a word. For what a man loves, he will follow. What a woman values, she will obey. For Christians, God is to be our ultimate love, our only passion.

Either way, Christ's love control us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. (2 Corinthians 5:14)

The wise person transliterates God's expectation into core values. He then translates them into strategies for obedience. The first action acknowledges the timeless practicality of God's Word; the second acknowledges the timely practicaly of God's Word.

All Scripture is inspired by God an is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. (2 Timothy 3:16)
