1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
An old man once told me that I should be a lawyer when I grew up because I loved to argue.
I really don’t have respectable answer for that suggestion, other than being a lawyer has not been laid on my heart by God,but my love for arguing does benefit me in other ways. Arguing can be healthy and I take advantage of that fact. When I say argue, I don’t mean being negative to one another. As Christians it’s are duty to tell people about Christ. When nonbelievers ask us tough questions, we need to be prepared with God’s wisdom. Let your passion for Christ speak through your words. Don’t be afraid to debate for God.
I often catch myself correcting people about religion. In today’s society people think faith in God has to do with religion. For an example: If I Invite someone to a Christian church they’ll then say, “ I am not Christian Im catholic.” Our faith shouldn’t be attached to a religion but to the word of God. So when people make that statement Ill tell them thats its not about religion but a relationship with Christ. Religion is man made. No where in the Bible does it say to go through man’s rules to worship God. It says to go through the son in order to get to the Father.
I grew up playing and loving sports to death so I am very passionate about them. I was saved at Ten years old and became passionate about Christ but when I was 18 years old in the Army basic training through God’s word my passion for Christ went through the roof. God’s word changed my life and I will never be the same.
God is using my passionate personality for His glory! The only way to live for Christ is to have a passionate relationship with Him. God doesn’t want us to have mediocre lives. He wants us to live life to the fullest, through Him. God’s grace and love for us should be like a lightning bolt that motivates us each and everyday. If you wake up and think the day is going to be a bad day, then its probably going to be a bad day. Wake up each morning with praise for God. Thank the Lord for each day.
God used the Army to change my life, so I am very proud to serve America. But something that I will not mistake is that God comes first in our lives, even before the Army. God, family,Army, and education are my priorities in life right now, in that order. Sometimes people put other things like the Army before God. While I am under contract with the Army it does not have complete control over my life. God is in absolute control! Without hesitation God outranks everything and everybody! Motivation is very important in the military. The motivation I get every day from constantly moving, comes from God. God gives my strength and energy every morning when I have to wake up at 0520 to exercise. It makes no sense to lolly gag early in the morning. God expects 100% out of us. God will help you stay motivated as long as you put forth the effort.
In order for God to work in our lives we have to be motivated and passionate for Him. This means reading his word, going to church and worship. Most important out of those three is reading His word. If we aren’t doing these things to stay in fellowship with God, it is very easy to lose motivation in life. Without fellowship with our creator, we get lost in the world. Without God life has no meaning or purpose. The best way to live life is with passion. The best way to keep that passion and motivation is to live passionately for Christ!
