What am I passionate about? Well that's easy! I'm passionate about The Lord and what He has created. The Lord gave us the earth to rule over and subdue (have dominion over) (Genesis 1:28) and I believe that is both a calling and a command. It is provision by God that the earth and all that comes from it can meet our needs for food, water, shelter and clothing (all our basic needs). Not only will The Lord provide all our needs (Philippians 4:19) He has already done so through the creation of this place we call our temporary home.
The command: We are supposed to rule over the earth. The earth is a lesser creation than humans because it has no soul and was not created in God's image. God granted man dominion over plants and animals (not the other way around), so it is our duty to fulfill our needs with them. What does that mean exactly? It means EAT! It means to thank The Lord for the blessing of provision by consuming that which He has given us. It means we should not be afraid to hunt for our dinner or pierce the soil with a spade and drop a couple seeds in the hole. It means to pick fruit off the trees and allow our bodies to be nourished by them. It means to go fishing and enjoy the bounty. This is a command we can take pleasure in as we seek to enjoy the bounty of the earth with the people around us we are blessed to called family and friends. We often gather together over food, so may we remember each time we do that we are acting in accordance with God’s command to eat what He has provided. Therefore, eat with JOY!
My passion is "the call;” the call to be wise and sustain the earth as an act of worship to the God who cares and provides.
