What makes you come alive? In today's passage we discover what caused the Apostle Paul to come alive. We will find that real joy comes by determining that our priority will be a passion for Christ. There are three "joy dividends" that a passion for Christ yields.
1. A passion for Christ yields the joy of confident living, v. 19.
2. A passion for Christ yields the joy of courageous living, v. 20.
3. A passion for Christ yields the joy of committed living, vv. 21-26.
2 Corinthians 3:18
1 John 4:12
If there was a "passion meter" to measure your spiritual passion, on a scale of 1-10 (cool - hot) where would you like to be?
