Recently, I was reminded of this principle: Sharing what you believe = a re-ignition of passion!
Do you believe it?
Check out this passage of scripture:
Philemon 1:6 (ESV) says, "...and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ."
Did you notice the verb "SHARING"...and how it leads to an effectiveness in KNOWING every good thing inside of us?
Sharing our beliefs serves to remind us of all that we have. It forces us to put into words the concepts we believe in our hearts...which then leads to a greater knowledge in our heads! I love it!
Have you shared your passion lately?
I've noticed that when I'm feeling stagnant in my relationship with God...it's because I'm not sharing. Just like we need to breathe in and breathe out to stay physically healthy...we need to take in and give out in our faith to stay spiritually healthy.
Maybe today you're feeling stagnant. Maybe, what you need most is to carve out some time to to articulate what you believe. Think it through, write it down, type it out...do whatever you need to do... and then look for opportunities to share it with someone...PASS IT ON!
May we continue to push each other into keeping the passion for what we believe strong!
Sharing what you believe = a re-ignition of passion!
