Daily Thought: We Need Passion

"We cannot hope to live like him [Jesus] without a similar depth of passion.  Many people find that the dilemma of desire is too much to live with, and so they abandon, they disown their desire.  This is certainly true of a majority of Christians at present.  Somehow we believe that we can get on without it. We are mistaken." ~ John Eldredge, The Journey of Desire, p. 55

Hi Greetings!
I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button located at the top of my blogspot.com I frequently visit other blogs encouraging the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.

It’s a daily procedure to have passion to transform into his reflection and achieving the ultimate sanctification by the end of our life on this earth!

Kingdom Blessings!
