What are you passionate about? It’s the saddest thing to go through life not having a passion for anything. Having a passion for people is common these days…we are in an era were people fall in love, or get obsessed or infatuated with each other per second per second on the go, but you will be amazed to know that most people do not have a passion for anything. No passion for the course they study, no passion for the job they do, no passion for God or Devil, no passion for their goals, no passion for anything.
Some people waltz through life living it as it comes. Not making an impact anywhere or in any area, just going with the flow. Sitting on the fence, never going a hundred percent in any direction…nor going zero percent in any direction either, not being outstanding in any one thing. They play it safe. Not too small, not too much…just okay. 'Just okay' people are the saddest people on earth. These are the people who won’t be missed when they die… they are not known for anything, they will be forgotten in a hurry. They are not known to be good they are not known to be bad, they are not hot they are not cold, not high or low, not independent or dependent, not decisive, not a party starter or party pooper, they are just there.
'I know thy works, that thou art neither hot nor cold, I wish thou were cold or hot' (Bible: Rev 3: 15)… I always overlooked this passage, never really understanding what God was talking about. But these days when I read this text, I can almost feel His pain here. The truth of the matter is that those who are ‘just there’…those without passion for anything, are a complete waste of space in the universe. You can’t rely on them because they are neither here nor there; you can’t pray for them, because they are sitting on the fence thus you don’t know where they want to be; they can’t influence others because they don’t completely believe in anything enough to stand for it and convince others about it. They are a complete waste of space a bore and a nuisance to their circle of influence.
What are you passionate about? If you are above 20 years you should be able to count at LEAST three (3) things you are crazy about. What is your thing? When people talk about you what are those things they can identify you with, or are you one of those people no one talks about because you cannot be associated with any relevant topic. What is your thing? Do you even have a thing?
Be passionate about God and the things of God or be passionate about the devil… be hot or be cold, know it or don’t know it…strive to go all the way or don’t go at all… do it well or don’t do it at all, either represent light or represent darkness but don’t be in-between the two…that results in ‘low current’ and that is the most irritating thing anyone could be.
Search yourself… if strength is taken from you, and you find yourself immobile for days… what is that thing people will miss you for or will they not even notice you are not there? What is that one or two or three thing you yourself will miss most that might bring you to tears because you are incapable of doing them? If you can’t think of anything (anything not anybody) then you are a complete waste. You should be very far from normal people.
‘so then because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee from my mouth’ (Rev 3;16). This is a new year, make up your mind not to be a waste… so you don't get vomited by God or man.
