Moments of Faith Daily Devotional 18th March 2024 by Prophet Frank Udoh.

Title: Embracing Passion for Christ. 

Scripture Reading: Psalm 42:1-2 (NIV) “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?”


In a world filled with distractions and competing priorities, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose—to love and serve Jesus Christ with all our hearts. Yet, as followers of Christ, our deepest longing should be to know Him intimately and to passionately pursue His will for our lives. In this devotional, let’s explore the transformative power of having a passion for Christ and how it can revolutionize our faith journey.


Pause and reflect on the imagery of Psalm 42:1-2. Just as a deer thirsts for water, so should our souls thirst for God. Do you find yourself longing for deeper intimacy with Christ? Are you yearning to know Him more intimately and to experience His presence in your life?

Consider the areas of your life where your passion for Christ may have waned. Have you allowed busyness, distractions, or worldly desires to overshadow your love for Him? Take a moment to confess any areas of apathy or indifference in your heart and ask God to reignite the flame of passion within you.

Think about the times in your life when your passion for Christ burned brightly. What were the key factors that fueled your zeal for Him? Perhaps it was a season of fervent prayer, immersion in His Word, or fellowship with other believers. Whatever it may be, ask God to revive that passion within you and to guide you back to a place of wholehearted devotion.

As you rekindle your passion for Christ, commit to pursuing Him with everything you have. Make time for prayer, worship, and studying His Word. Seek opportunities to serve others and share the love of Christ with those around you. Let your life be a testament to the transforming power of a passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ.


Lord Jesus, ignite within us a passion for You that burns brighter than ever before. Help us to thirst for You as the deer pants for water and to pursue You with all our hearts. May our lives be a reflection of Your love and grace, drawing others into a deeper relationship with You. In Your precious name, amen.
