Acts 20:17-24

Building the Passion and Keeping the Passion

Faithful to the Finish

His Faithful Servants

  • “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others”  1 Peter 4:10

Running To Finish, Running to Win

  • Acts 20:24
  • Philippians 1:6, 2:16 and 3:13-14
  • 1 Corinthians 9:24
  • Galatians 5:7
  • Hebrews 12:1-2
  • 2 Peter 1:11

Going the Distance

Remember that Jesus not only showed us how to endure faithfully, but by His Spirit He lives in us to keep our spiritual passion alive until we cross the finish line.

The Joy of Running

People with a passion for God are:

  • Fueled by the power of the Spirit
  • Tied into Jesus by the Word, worship, fellowship, and prayer
  • Committed to a lifetime of faithful service.

“Sanctify the Lord in [your] hearts, always being ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you.”  1 Peter 3:15
