Wholly Living

There’s a common saying that goes something like this: “Whatever you do, do it with all your heart.” Everyone has a passion for something, whether it’s sports, art, or just being a good friend. Once you find your passion, you want to learn about it, immerse yourself in it, and focus on it. This is the way that God planned for us to live–with one exception– He wants to be the passion we chase after. God gives each and every person in this world gifts and talents, but it is up to you to bring Jesus into the center of the things you love to do. Ephesians 3:20 says that if we allow Jesus to work through us and our passions that we will be able to do immeasurably more than we can even imagine. Living your life to the fullest doesn’t mean dedicating your life to an earthly passion or even chasing after your dreams like the world may make us think sometimes; those things only work when God is working through you. To truly live wholly, you must first wholly give yourself to God.
