Jeremiah was a young man, perhaps a teenager, when God filled him with passion for people. To Jeremiah, this passion was a fire from God that could not be extinguished.
But if I say, “I will not mention him or speak any more in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.
The Bible is full of individuals who, like Jeremiah, embody God’s passionate heart for others. Moses responded to God’s call to lead his people out of slavery in Egypt. A young shepherd boy named David stood against a giant named Goliath who threatened God’s people. A fisherman left his nets and extended God’s offer of forgiveness to the very people who crucified Jesus. A Jewish nationalist changed his name to Paul and spent his life offering God’s love to the nations he once despised.
Passion is a burning force that seizes you and provides a power that moves you beyond ordinary human activity. Passion will not let you go until God’s goals are reached.
Do you embody God’s passion for people? Have you experienced an inner urgency to act outwardly in the name of God?
