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.
