The Passion Translation
Be enthusiastic to serve the Lord, keeping your passion toward Him boiling hot. Radiate with the glow of the Holy Spirit and let Him fill you with excitement as you serve Him. Let his hope burst forth within you, releasing a continual joy.
Don't give up in a time of trouble, but commune with God at all times.
Don't give up. Keep yourselves fueled and aflame by His word. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant.
Don't quit in the hard times.
Don't allow fear to cloud your hearts.
Don't forget that you are part of a greater whole if you have dedicated your life to God and to serving in His Kingdom.
Sing His praise no matter what is going on in your life. Find reasons to praise. They are there if we'll only look. Keep our passion burning so that we will stand out in a world of anger, hate, and strife.
Because, in the end, only one thing truly matters....
