Living with Passion
Read Acts 20:1 through 21:40
While David was overseas on a mission trip, he decided to take an early morning walk through the city. While walking, he found a young, homeless boy wrapped in newspapers. The boy had died during the night because of the cold. That day, he made it his mission to open an orphanage so that all children could be provided for and have a place where they felt loved and secure.
Paul also knew what his mission was.
“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace” (Acts 20:24).
Do today’s Christians understand the apostle Paul’s passion? What he cared about most wasn’t his life, but that his life was spent accomplishing the task of making Jesus known to all. Paul’s passion gave him his purpose for living.
When Christians understand what their mission for God’s Kingdom is, they too will know what their purpose is.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, give me a passionate spirit so I can complete my mission in life.

Devotional brought to you by God's Word For Today.
God's Word For Today is available from Gospel Publishing House.
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
