Heaven is Cheap enough!  Yes my friends For you and I it is cheap, But oh what a cost to our Savior who had the PASSION to give it all for us.


PASSION, How do you define such a feeling, or an attitude. Going to Webster it describes the word as a powerful or compelling emotion or feeling as love or hate. Which if nothing else explains the great controversy between good and evil.

A-Review-of-The-Passion-of-Christ-Movie-CoverBut today I seek THE PASSION OF CHRIST, and not what the world or the opposing side defines as Passion, but what I seek, I hope we all, which is the PASSION OF THE CROSS AND WHAT IT TOOK FOR OUR SALVATION.

Each of us have probably had a Damascus road experience Like Paul where you had a passion for the opposing side, but by the grace of God that all changed because our God saw something that allowed each of us a chance to fill through His Spirit what real PASSION was truly like.

Paul tells us “But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ. Philippians 3:7-8

Reading that text gives each of us hope, because it lays out a road map that starts with the willingness to deprive ourselves of all earthly gain including friends and family for the PASSION OF CHRIST. But where do we start.

I don’t think there is a written or oral examination on how I seek and find the PASSION OF CHRIST, because to be imageswilling to give it all for the Master is asking a lot. Do I start by selling all I have, do I stand on the corner and scream Jesus Christ and Him Crucified, do I set myself on fire all in the name of the Master.

I mention those extreme measures because throughout history people have done everything imaginable for a cause, and placed Christ name in front of it. But My friends the true PASSION OF CHRIST, that feeling and attitude, that Christ has ask each of us to seek, will lead to our ETERNAL DESTINATION which begin at creation to Calvary and will go throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.

But if you are a Child of God it really is not hard to find the PASSION OF CHRIST for it is all in His WORD and His WORD along. For In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

dreamstime_4732909Because without the word there is no PASSION, OR HOPE FOR SALVATION, as we allow the Spirit to guide, while allowing the Word to become our roadmap to the PASSION CHRIST FELT and the PASSION WE SEEK.

And not a false Passion that Satan presents to us that will lead to perdition. “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 2 Cor 4:17 It is promises like that my friends where I find THE TRUE PASSION OF CHRIST.

But as I pursue this PASSION this is what drives me to follow Christ, and not what my Savior can give me in His treasure chest of blessings, it is very easy to seek all the gifts that God gives to His children while forgetting about the true treasure which is His PRESENCE, AND PASSION IN OUR LIFE.

And once we have obtained this PASSION, then comes  discipleship which takes us back to Paul who says he is willing totumblr_lf6btymqnG1qfg3voo1_400 give it all up for the Master remember the PASSION OF CALVARY was not about the blessings of our life that Christ gives us, the beautiful home, cars, great job and a  lovely family.

But the PASSION OF CHRIST ON CALVARY, was about given us all an opportunity for a PASSIONATE RELATIONSHIP with our Creator. And then telling others of His Love and grace and eternal life. But remember at the same time Satan will be telling you “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.”

Which is a false hope, my friends, true PASSION  is “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily. As you allow the Word and God’d Spirit to direct you to the TRUE PASSION OF CHRIST


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
