Passion for Jesus
- Passion for Christ should exceed everything else in life.
- A New Year helps us to stay on track and stay the course.
- Every day we should seek the Lord
PHIL 3:7-12 ESV Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

PROTECT YOUR HEART! @ 13:12
PROV 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
(Above all keeping) Guard, Protect, Watch, Keep
1408 נצר (nṣr) II. Assumed root of the following. 1408a נֵצֶר (nēṣer) branch, shoot, sprout. This noun, coming from an Arabic root meaning “to be fresh, bright, grown green,” appears only four times.
Proverbs 4:23 CSB “Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.”
What Defiles a Person
14And he called the people to him again and said to them, “Hear me, all of you, and understand: 15There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.”e 17And when he had entered the house and left the people, his disciples asked him about the parable. 18And he said to them, “Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile him, 19since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?”f (Thus he declared all foods clean.) 20And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. 21For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, 22coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. 23All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”
You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.
But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a man.
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, and slander.
For from within the hearts of men come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery,
The good man brings good things out of the good treasure of his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil treasure of his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.
Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen, and so that they do not slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and grandchildren.
THE LORD LOOKS ON THE HEART!
1 SAMUEL 16:7 English Standard Version
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
DINING WITH THE HATED— Luke 5:27-32
HATED GROUP OF PEOPLE
In Jesus’ time, tax collectors were pretty much hated by the people.
These were Jews who were taking advantage by collecting Rome’s taxes plus a surcharge to line their own pockets
THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE DISADVANTAGED
TAX COLLECTOR. The Gk. word telōnēs (av ‘publican’) means a collector of tax or custom on behalf of the Romans
The system was very open to abuse, and the publicani seem to have been prone to extortion and malpractice from the very beginning
Lk. 19:2 seems to imply that Zacchaeus was the contractor for the whole of the taxes of Jericho and had collectors under him
WHEN SINNERS REPENT
UP TO HALF MY KINGDOM I WILL GIVE
I WILL REPAID 4 TIMES OVER - WOW!
“And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.
On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:
And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there. While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.

GAL 5:1 FOR FREEDOM CHRIST HAS SET US FREE - STAD FIRM AND DO NOT SUBMIT AGAIN TO A YOKE OF SLAVERY
WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED
The Truth Will Set You Free
JOHN 8:31-36 - ESV So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
LK 13:11-18 - WOMAN SET FREE FROM A DISABLING SPIRIT v12
He laid his hands on her and immediately she was freed
SIN IS ROOTED IN TRAUMA & DEATH DRIVEN
IT HOLD US CAPTIVE & KEEPS US AWAY FROM GOD AND HIS BLESSING
