What moves God to tears? What causes His heart to ache with desire? If God could sleep, what would keep Him up at night? What is the real "passion" of Jesue? And do we share that same passion?
Mere churchgoers may be surprised at the answer, True followers of Jesus won't be becasue they know the aanswer lies not on the padded peew, but on a skidrow sidewalk, in an understaffed AIDS clinic, a battered women's shelter, a refugee camp, a drug- and gang- infested inner- city housing project.
Jesus has a passionate love affair with the poor. The downtrodden. The margin-alized. The forgotten. And nowhere in Scripture is this passion more clearly defined than in the fifty-eighth chapter of Isaiah—God's passionate plea to His slumbering people to care about the things He cares about.
In Pursuing the Passion of Jesus, noted pastor and author Dwight Nelson opens this powerful but often overlooked chapter in the Bible and shows in eye-opening detail how loving the least—personal and practical ministry to those who suffer- help you fulfill God's purpose for your life.
As Christians, watching the world go by is not our calling. Lifting the world out of its collective misery is. In the pages of this book you will hear again the Savior's call to share His true passion. And if you go beyond hearing to living the principles Melson presents, you'll be blessed with a faith that works, a joy that lasts, and a heart like Christ's.
