II. A MAN OF PASSION.
Passion: An intense, extreme, strong & overpowering emotion & feeling. The object of such enthusiasm.
What is the object of your enthusiasm? It must be to Glorify God. Amen!]
You need to have the HUNGER and the DESIRE so that you will be on FIRE!
The C’s(COMMITMENT, COURAGE & CRAVING):
Psalm 17:15, “But David WENT BACK & FORT between WORKING FOR SAUL & HELPING HIS FATHER with the sheep in Bethlehem.”
He’s working in the palace! What’s he doing? Still tending his father’s flock?
If we have a HEART like David’s. That’s what we do. Even in a little ways!
Fix & clean the Worship Service hall.
Wipe & arrange the chairs.
Sweep the floor.
Wash cups and plates.
1 Samuel 17:32-33,35, "DON’T WORRY ABOUT A THING," David told Saul. "I’ll go fight this Philistine!" "Don’t be ridiculous!" Saul replied. "There is no way you can go against this Philistine. You are only a boy, and he has been in the army since he was a boy!"
THINK POSITIVE! TRUST IN GOD.
David was saying, “Not by might nor by power but by the Spirit of God!”
He was strong & courageous to face “the giant”, fear.
He will never forsake those who LOVE & OBEY Him. It was promise. It was spoken many times!
Psalm 17:28-19, But when David’s oldest brother, Eliab, heard David talking to the men, he was angry. "What are you doing around here anyway?" he demanded. "What about those few sheep you’re supposed to be taking care of? I KNOW ABOUT YOUR PRIDE AND DISHONESTY! You just want to see the battle!" "What have I done now?" David replied. "I was only asking a question!"
Imagine a boy who was scolded by an older man.
Keep going in spite of Discouragements, Temptations, Challenges or Trials.
Don’t Worry! As long as you have RIGHT MOTIVE. As long as you are Obeying God’s Will.
Never mind those people who stops you. They may criticize you!
Remain Faithful to God. He will lift you higher!
Psalm 34:35, But David PERSISTED, "I have been taking care of my father’s sheep," he said. "When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock, I go after it with a club and take the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death.”
PERSIST: Keep going! Look forward!
Prove that you are worthy. WILLINGNESS!
