The Power of Passion, Urgency, and Zeal

 
By:  Mission Team April 10, 2021

One key element of being a Hard as Nails Missionary I would like to tell you about is something the cool kids call PUZ Power. Passion, Urgency, and Zeal. Let me break it down for you guys....

Passion

The definition of passion is: "a strong and barely controllable emotion". This kind of emotion is what we need to have for our Faith. You need to be passionate about your faith if you want to be able to live it and bring people to it.

You have to be so on fire with your faith that it doesn’t matter if you are killed for it. Your passion for it should be that intense. People are passionate about working out. Why can’t we be passionate about something that will last for all eternity?

Urgency

The definition of urgency is: "something of importance requiring swift action". This we need to have when it comes to winning souls for Jesus Christ! We need to be quick about it, we need to be dedicated to it, we need to move.

To be urgent doesn't mean you are rushing around aimlessly, it means that you are focused on what needs to be done and just doing it! Urgency is a necessity when it comes to being a missionary, when it comes to, heck, getting through life in everything that is good.

Christ was urgent; he freaking saved the world in three years! We need to get people to Christ, and we have our entire lives to do it. If Christ can do it in three years, what's stopping us from doing it in like ninety years?

Zeal

The definition of Zeal is: "great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective". Fun fact for this year 2021, this is the virtue that I have to pray about and work on. I didn't understand why at first, until I saw the definition of it.

I needed to have a greater enthusiasm and energy for my faith, as well as for bringing people to Jesus. This is what I have been lacking and what I need to grow in if I want to truly say I am doing God's will.

We all need more zeal in our lives. It will make us better friends, better spouses, better siblings, and what the heck, it will make us better humans! Zeal is beautiful; don't be slacking in it. Pray for the grace to be more zealous for the faith!

In conclusion…

To put it as bluntly as possible, you need to be passionate, urgent and zealous with your love for Jesus Christ for He was to us, which is why He died on the cross for us. These three things I just talked about go hand in hand. We should be able to live them out easily in our faith life, there should not be so much struggle to do so. I challenge you to do this one simple service. The next time you see someone struggling don’t hesitate to help them.
