I got an early morning surprise this morning – the new Passion CD. Earlier this year I attended Passion 2013 in Atlanta. After every conference, Passion releases a new album with all the new worship songs. The new album is called Let the Future Begin. The theme of Passion 2013 was this whole issue of modern-day slavery/sex trafficking and how this generation can abolish it. Passion launched End It Movement after the conference – a movement to raise awareness about the 27 million people being held in modern-day slavery. The songs that were sung at Passion 2013 are songs of hope and freedom. I loved last year’s White Flag and this one will be no different. It will always be special for me knowing I was in attendance singing along with 60,000 of my brothers and sisters in Christ.

Louie and Andy reunite with their childhood youth director Ms. Gellerstedt

God wants to do immeasurably more in your life than you can imagine

This is the overall theme of Passion 2013. Andy Stanley prayed over all of us and for this week at Passion. Louie brought Andy’s and his youth director from their childhood days. She is 87 years old and she probably never imagined that these two were going to be lead Pastors of thriving churches. It was a touching moment for me because I still stay in contact with some of my youth leaders from my childhood days and I love sharing with them what God is doing in my life. I’m so appreciate for them sticking with me through those teenager years. Louie went into a little history of Passion and how God did immeasurably more in his life with this movement. He showed us a clip from a global movement in Seoul that he saw before the first Passion in ’97 that inspired him for the vision of Passion. Here are some notes from his talk:

God intervenes into our foolishness. We are held in captivity and a lot of it is due to our choices. But God breathes into the hard-hearted and puts a beating heart into us (Ezekiel 36:24-27). He wants to do immeasurably more in us.

The rest of the talk centered around Ezekiel 37:1-6. This is the famous passage of scripture in which Ezekiel is led to the valley of dry bones. These bones represent the hopeless. God asks if the bones will live and Ezekiel responds “Sovereign Lord, you know”. He doesn’t question God because he knows the power of God. This is different from when the father in Mark 9:14 who questions Jesus if He can heal his son. Jesus gets annoyed with his unbelief. But then the cool thing is that the father asks Jesus to help his with unbelief. Shouldn’t we be praying that to God? I know that there are many times in my life I don’t believe in the power of God and I need to be praying to God in my time of unbelief. It’s an honest prayer to God. Jesus then rebukes the spirit in the boy and lifts the him to his feet. The boy stands up because Jesus wants to do immeasurably more in him.

Everything is possible for those who believes (Mark 9:23)

From Ezekiel we learn four things: We need to keep hearing and receiving the word of God. He breathes life into us. He is always repairing and restoring and we will know He is Lord by what He does in us. When we are in the valley, God comes to us in our brokenness. The bound are set free and the dead come alive. He lifts us up and it’s all for His glory.
