What Is Your Passion?

“Everyone has a passion.  A new idea to share.  What will your verse be?”  This is Apple iPad Air’s latest advertising challenging us by appealing to our core.   Everyone has a passion.  We might never have stopped long enough to probe our inner being and put it into words.  Maybe for the first time we are asked to articulate just why we think we are here and what will be our legacy.  Others form ideas of who we are.  Unfortunately, they are not always positive.  But we are the owners of ourselves.  We are the ones who should define ourselves.  We have the right to reject other’s flawed projections. We have the right to say who and what we are.

There has never been another like you.  There will never be another like you.  You are unique in eternity.  What is your verse?  What do you want to say that no one else can ever say?  What passion fills your life?  How will the world be different because you were here?

You are not a cipher. You are not an accidental combination of DNA resulting in your consciousness.  God is not a God who plays favorites and He said to Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; . .”  In Ephesians 2 Paul wrote, “We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”   In God’s great plan you have an appointed task no one else can do.  It is your God given passion. One of life’s great tasks is to discover it, identify it, give it flesh with your words and do it with all your might.
