Imagine if I told you that I was absolutely passionate about the Baltimore Orioles. Then as a way to keep the conversation going you ask me, “When was the last time you talked to somebody about them?” Then imagine I said, “Wow, I have no idea. It’s been like forever.” “Wait a second,” you ask, “How often would you say you talk about the Orioles in general?” I think for a second and then answer, “Well, basically never.”
Now ask yourself this question before continuing to read…based on the above do you still believe I’m passionate about them?
If you’re being really honest the answer is no. So now the obvious questions are…when was the last time you talked to someone about Jesus? When was the last time you invited someone to church with you? When was the last time you shared with someone else about all that God is doing in your life?
If the answer is “It’s been a long while” or “I never do that” then it’s time to seriously evaluate just how passionate about Jesus you really are. The big 3 indicators of passion are:
1. What do you spend the majority of your time on?
2. What do you spend the majority of your money on?
3. What do you most talk about?
We try to make it very easy each week for you to have spiritual conversations with those around you by presenting topics that are relevant to all of our lives. For the next two weeks I’ll be talking about money and how to avoid all the stress that’s generally associated with it. So take a chance and invite someone to come along with you this weekend….who knows maybe it will be the first step towards them coming into a relationship with Christ.
