Day #18: A Time When I Felt Passionate and Alive

The time when I felt most passionate and alive is when my sister and I were reciting a slew of verses in front of our church.  These verses included Isaiah 52:13,14; Matthew 27:27-31; Isaiah 53:1-6; and Matthew 27:45-54.  When you are gripped by the Word of God especially consisting of Christ and His cross, the all-glorious Gospel, nothing is going to stop you.   That is what happened to Rachel and I.  I cannot say for sure that it happened to her (I take that back.  It was very evident in her :), but as I was reciting those verses, God's all-consuming joy and passion was clearly evident in me at that moment.  I nearly broke out into tears one time during the recitation in front of the whole church.  Amazingly, I somehow kept my composure, because God was filling up my heart with unspeakable and incomprehensible joy.  I cannot even begin to explain what happened on that day, but I do know one thing and one thing only........ Jesus Christ died for me and I will passionately scream, if I have too, to pronounce, proclaim His truth to all people--- the astounding and significant truths of the Gospel.  

Sola Deo Gloria!!!!!
