Passion in Missions
February 6, 2022 • Rev George Flattery • Nehemiah 2
1. Passion will lead us into doing things for God that we have no right in the natural to be doing. God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things for him. 2. Passion is always created from the inside out and not the outside in. 3. Passion is the result of an encounter with Jesus and being connected to the vine.
