A Burning Desire - Lane Landry
A burning desire in our hearts that God has fanned into flame to share the greatness of His love.
Leaving a legacy comes from a burning desire. A burning desire in our hearts that God has fanned into flame to share the greatness of His love. His love was and is so great for us that, He gave His one and only Son to be crucified on the cross for us; just in the hope that we might believe and receive eternal life. There was no guarantee that we would accept this offer. But it was His burning desire that we would, because we are His children.
Once we grab hold of this revelation, how does it not become a burning desire to share? It’s a revelation that once received, it cannot simply be contained. By nature, we would live to see it impact others.
Serving in kids’ ministry was never about a love for ‘babysitting’ and not even a love for kids. Serving in the kids’ ministry was always about a burning desire to share His good news to the next generation, in the same hope that they might believe and, then impact the people in their world with God’s love. This is a generational echo. One that lives for the cause of Christ.
Wesley L Duewel says, “All other passions build upon or flow from your passion for Jesus. A passion for souls grows out of a passion of Christ. A passion for missions builds upon a passion for Christ. The most crucial danger to a Christian, whatever his role, is to lack a passion of Christ. The most direct route to personal renewal and new effectiveness is a new all-consuming passion for Jesus. Lord, give us this passion, whatever the cost!”
