Passions of the Heart!
There are no better people to be around than those who have a zest for life and a joy in their hearts. Few as there may be, when you meet one you just know it. There's something about them that draws you inward, some call it a persons, "Persona", I believe God would call it your, "Passion." Some say you are just born with that inner balance and security that is so magnetic.
David was one of those people that had that hunger for life. It didn't matter if he was herding sheep, slaying a lion, or killing giants with slingshots, David had it, and all around him new it. They were drawn to him, the bible even states that "David was a man after God's own heart."
But more importantly it was what he knew he held in his heart. It bigger than life, a higher calling so to speak, and anything David came up against could defeat him. In his heart he new that with the Lord almighty nothing was impossible. " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."Phil. 4:13.
Even more so than David was a man called Jesus who demonstrated a life full of passion. So much so that he was willing to lay down his life for his beliefs in his heart. He also had it, and people new it.
There is an old saying that says, we are only as good as those we hang around. In other words, if you are a certain level tennis player and you only play against people of your skill level you will not be tested and your game will not improve. The same holds true in our Christian life. Having accountability partners, being in small groups or hanging around those that are more mature Christians in their walk only helps our game or our own relationship with Christ. But even more find someone who has it.
One that has that Passion of the Heart that love for Christ and life. They're out there you just have to have a willing heart in order to find them. Psalms 73:28 "be it is good for me to draw near to God, I have put my trust in the Lord God that I may declare all thy works." There in lies the answer to "How can I have that Passion? How can I find those that have it?" Draw nearer to God, trust in him.
