Wednesday's Word - Passion Fruit

Hello All,
I’ve been silent on the issue up until now. But how can you not pay 'some sort' of attention to this Presidential race? It’s crazy.
I find my self flipping from through news channels to see what’s gonna happen next. And though you may not agree with any
candidate in particular; they surely seemed to have pulled out all the stops. If anyone ever needed a definition for the word ‘zeal’,
just take a look at the tenacity with which these candidates are campaigning.
Even as dissimilar as the two are: Christianity and partisan politics, I actually think that the Body could learn a thing or two;
not so much in regards to message but definitely in the way of effort and urgency. Could it be that our minds have played a trick on us?
Or have we simply watered down the understanding that how we live and pray can(should) affect people around us and it’s in
the strength of the Holy Spirit that allows us to live righteously and bear fruit to the Glory of God. It’s not just the fruit that I’m talking about
… it’s the passion. Here’s the Word:

Romans 12:11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Galatians 5:22-25 not only lists the fruit of the Spirit, but also tells us that our old sinful passions are dead and that we now live by the Spirit. We’ve crossed over from death to life and no longer run after those things that don’t glorify God. But it doesn’t mean stop running...Continue to run, just in a different direction.
We ought to be excited, bearing the fruit of Spiritual passions.

Not Silent Anymore,
Cros
