And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment. 2 Samuel 6:14 (NLT) 

Do you know anyone who always seems excited about what they’re doing? People like this are electric. They’re fun to be around, and their enthusiasm is contagious. 

King David had a depth of passion that could only come from God. If you aren’t convinced that passion can come from God, consider that one of the root words for enthusiasm is “theos,” so to be enthused, or “in theos,” means to be in God. He’s the creator of excitement and enthusiasm! 

David’s passion was obvious to everyone around him, and because of this he attracted an army of mighty men who were unstoppable. Together, they overcame impossible situations. This is because passion increases creativity. Indifference, on the other hand, destroys creativity and gives way to the language of excuses. 

If you lose your drive and stop being excited about something, you begin to make excuses as to why it can’t be done. You will start to believe that your excuses are reality, but if someone more passionate than you steps in, they will get it done because they’ve maintained their passion. 

This is why it is so important that you stay enthusiastic about Jesus. Your excitement is what make you an attractive force for Him. Think about your relationship with Him and remember why you love being a Christian. In your everyday interactions with people, that enthusiasm will come across and you will influence others to want to get to know the Jesus who has changed your life.
