GOD the Spirit
had Acts1:3 read "Passion" in the KJV
to challenge, teach, witness Jn15 fellow-partakers.

GOD expects true leaders copy the passion of Christ
Acts1:3 To whom also He shewed himself alive after His passion
by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days,
and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of GOD.

Passion to obey
Jn15:10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love,
just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.

Passion to perform
1Jn2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

Churches buy thousands of tickets to 'Passion'

    Mel Gibson's film "The Passion of the Christ" doesn't open in the theaters for almost a month, but a growing number of Chicago area churches already are buying thousands of tickets to ensure that their members get to see it.
    "I feel like there's going to be almost like a cultural happening here with this," Dan Marler, pastor of Church of God in Oak Lawn, said.

    The movie depicts the last 12 hours of Jesus Christ's life, including a graphic depiction of his scourging and crucifixion.

GOD's word in pictures will divide
His flock, separating true doers from
the false, till few enter His passion.

GOD's essence, traits, virtues
thru Jn15 level true leaders in Welch's words:

    Basically, my process assesses four essential traits of leadership (each one starting with an E, a nice coincidence). One, successful leaders have tons of positive energy. They can go go go; they love action and relish change.

Two, they have the ability to energize others -- they love people and can inspire them to move mountains when they have to. Three, they have edge, the courage to make tough yes-or-no decisions -- no maybes. And finally, they can execute. They get the job done.

GOD's full grace develops Jn15 Passion

    If a candidate for a leadership role has the four E's, then you look for a final trait -- passion. By that I mean a heartfelt, deep and authentic excitement about life and work. People with passion care -- really care in their bones -- about neighbors, employees, colleagues and friends winning.

They love to learn and grow themselves, and they get a kick when the people around them do the same.
    Passion, luckily, can't be faked for very long, so this is usually a pretty easy call. Either people have a genuine zest for living and giving, or they're just showing up.
