TREM Devotional 10 February 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Let Your Passion Return
Topic: Let Your Passion Return
“Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works…” Revelation 2:5 (KJV)
I remember when we were growing up and our ministry was starting. Every group was actively on fire. When you come to church, you will be hearing prayer from every corner. From children to adults, everyone was involved in spiritual activity. There was spiritual fire all over the place. I remember the young men of those days, many of whom are occupying powerful positions in the society today. But they looked like nothing in those days; all they knew was to pray. There was so much passion for the things of God!
But today, even to be in church on time is a problem. Some people are not really sure whether they want to be in church at all; they would rather check online. Frankly, there is an anointing you can never receive online. There is a place of our gathering in our spiritual walk with God; except when government regulations do not permit church gatherings.
Why would anyone want to follow you to church when there is nothing enthusiastic about you? People are looking for something real. When they look at you and do not see how passionate you are about the God you profess to them, they may not want to serve that God because they don’t see Him in you. What are you showing the world that will make them want to follow you? The whole world is in a cup of trembling. Things are turning upside down. The only hope is Jesus. How can you stay from January to December, and there isn’t one person that you led to Jesus or that your life influenced? Do you really believe in this heaven? That if someone dies without Christ, he or she has gone to eternal damnation? Or, do you think it is a theory? If you believe it, you will cast them out of fire with every zeal that you have.
Don’t sabotage your own future by yourself. Let your zeal and fire return! Your life is Christ! You can never catch Christ without passion.
