God creates life. And wherever there is life, there is also growth. When someone’s life is changed, that person tells everyone. In the same way, in churches where there is life, there is also growth. Many times people ask us what the secret is to the growth of this church. I always say, “God has done it all. God has created life here.” God puts the seed of passion in your heart and there is life in that seed.
Genesis 1 verses 11 and 12 say, “Then God said ‘let the land produce vegetation. Seed bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it according to the various kinds’ and it was so. The land produced vegetation and plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds and God saw that it was good.”
If you live from the passion God placed in you, you come alive and you experience life more fully. The real issue is that the problems and pressures of life bury the seed of passion. Many times, we forget what we are really passionate about. We start living for profit or we start living from pressure that other people put on us. You’ll never experience God’s ultimate blessings until you live from the passion that God has placed in your heart because there is life in it. Some of you are just going through the motions of life and not really letting in the emotions of life. Whenever you live from the passion God placed in your heart, you experience the fulfillment that God has destined you for.
