I wrote this on a friend's wall in discussion of a "passion for evangelism" ///
I constantly tell myself to "rest", this does not mean that we are inactive, but we cannot let our passion be some paralyzing sorrow. Our hearts do grieve, but only God can save. We are to lovingly and humbly present the truth in word, deed, and life; then we confess that only God gives the increase. Sometimes passion turns into a pitiful wallowing, and that is not a sign of faith nor submission to what God has designed.
