10 Primal Days — Sweat Equity

12 01 2010

“Christianity was never intended to be a noun,” Mark Batterson from the new book Primal. In this 8th chapter Batterson challenges readers to take their God ideas and put some blood, sweat and tears behind them.  This is where the power of loving God with all your strength comes in.

Those who follow in the footsteps of Christ ought to be the most passionate people on the planet.  The word enthusiasm comes from a combination of two Greek words: en and Theos.  It means “in God.” And the more you get into God, the more passionate you become.  As we learn to love God with all our strength, He doesn’t crucify our desires.  He sanctifies them and intensifies them .  God doesn’t find our desires too strong.  He finds them too weak.

What desires is God sanctifying in your life?  How are you pursuing them? Loving God with all your strength isn’t comfortable.  Loving God with all your strength will make you sweat…what sweat equity are you putting into your ministry?

Breathe In & Smile Out,

Chris
