A Godly Passion

Philippians 3:14

The Christian journey is more often than not a long distance race. This is particularly true because of the long life that our heavenly father has promised us. So a godly passion is a deep motivation to serve the Lord.

Passion is the juice for living. For many people, life is drudgery. They have no motivation in regard to their jobs, spouses, education, or personal development. Someone once said that the most difficult thing about life is that it is so daily. Passion helps you to rise above your daily routines. If you are not motivated, then you will become a weight or burden to others. When you have passion, you don’t need the right conditions to move forward because passion is internally generated and is not affected by external conditions. It is important to recognise that we are the offspring of God and the epitome of success. This is because at redemption, we were ordained men and women of outstanding and unusual feats. Thus, as no failure son is a pride to the father, you can never be a source of pride to God in your failure state. God rejoices over only His outstanding children like a natural father will do. He is the Most High; so, we cannot be the lowest and say we are His children. However, it is important to understand that the Kingdom of God operates on keys; without which we may not attain the height God has destined for us.

A godly passion is one of the four dimensional keys for outstanding success. Everyone born into this world is separated for something. Everyone is separated to a well defined purpose. Where does passion come from? First, it comes from a sense of purpose. You are pursuing something that gives your life meaning. If you become distracted or opposition stands in your way, your destiny still pulls you in the direction of your desire because you can’t imagine not fulfilling it. Second, passion comes from having a sense of destiny. Passion comes from something outside this world and is
connected to it. If you get your passion from something on earth, then when it stops, you will stop.  As it is written in Jeremiah 1 vs 5: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. So godly passion comes from having a sense of purpose and destiny.


  1. That’s true, something has to motivate you in order to accomplish a mission and that is when you have a godly passion.
