SMS Message - PASSION FOR CHRIST WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE IS IGNORANCE AND IS SAME AS NOT HAVING THE THINGS OF GOD IN MIND BUT THE THINGS OF MEN AS RECORDED IN MATTHEW 16:21-23. ON WHAT DO YOU BASE YOUR PASSION? SO MANY TIMES, WE LOOK AT THE THINGS WE SEE PURELY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF HUMAN AND CONCLUDE THAT GOD CANNOT BE BEHIND SUCH, WITHOUT KNOWING THAT OUR EXPRESSIONS, ASSUMPTIONS AND CONCLUSION ARE SIMPLY STUMBLING BLOCK TO WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IN THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE WHEN PETER REBUKED JESUS FOR SAYING HE (JESUS) WILL SUFFER IN THE HANDS OF THE ELDERS AND BE KILLED AND ON THE THIRD DAY BE RAISED TO LIFE (VERSE 21). PETER SAID “NEVER, LORD!” (VERSE 22). THIS IS JUST LIKE THE WAY WE WILL ALWAYS SAY, 'GOD FORBID' WHEN WE SEE OR HEAR THINGS THAT DOES NOT ALIGN WITH OUR THOUGHTS AND EXPECTATIONS. LET US LEARN TO BRING EVERYTHING WE SEE AND HEAR INTO THE LIGHT OF THE WORD OF GOD BEFORE JUMPING INTO CONCLUSION, SO THAT WE WILL NOT BECOME STUMBLING BLOCK TO OUR OWN PROGRESS WHICH GOD HAD ALREADY PLANNED. YOUR PASSION FOR CHRIST SHOULD STRENGTHENED YOU TO SEEK KNOWLEDGE FROM HIM AND HOLD ONTO THEM RATHER THAN SPEAKING AND ACTING OUT OF EMPTINESS. KNOWLEDGE SHOULD DRIVE PASSION AND NOT PASSION DRIVING KNOWLEDGE. THINK ABOUT THIS IN THIS SEASON.
