Pursuing A Private Devotion That matches Your Public Passion

Pursuing A Private Devotion That matches Your Public Passion

When I began to become in love with my wife Mary, I dropped all the other 'loves" and pursued only her. What I felt about her in private became a passionate, somewhat public (I wanted people to know she was the only one for me, by my actions and attitudes) pace of pursuit. IĀ found out what she likes, and what would keep bringing her close.

I really like the definitions of these words and I think they fit people in World Revival Church: passion is a powerful or compelling deisre for something; to pursue means to follow something in order to overtake or follow close upon; and, pace means a certain rate of movement or activity. We know God likes effort, thats why our pace is so intense.Ā 

Here we find almost the opposite to be true. We are pursuing a private devotion that matches our public passion. We have learned that our revival relationship will always be: 1) I am your God; 2) You are my people; 3) I will come close and live among you. We have learned that God likes to be pursued, and we know what keeps him around - love that puts Him first, and faith - a confident faithful trust in Him and His Word.

Pursue those things in our homes and we'll will have a private devotion that matches our public passion.
