Live Passionately

January 7, 2018 Pastor: Bryan Glisson Series: A New Year's Revolution

Introduction: The greatest example of someone who lived life passionately was Jesus. From the time He was twelve to the night before He was to die we find His passion to live for His Heavenly Father. 

Then there was the apostle Paul in which we are given the opportunity, through the Word of God, to see his passion and perspective change in life.

The Definition of Passion

  • A strong compelling affection that moves a person toward something or someone
  • A fire within a person that can cause them to do great things

  • Misguided Passions (Philippians 3:3-6) (1 Corinthians 2:2)
  • Redirected Passions
