PASSION, means to suffer.
It is the impression or effect of an external agent upon a body; that which is suffered or received. It is the susceptibility of impressions from external agents. We equate passion this week with the suffering; of the Savior.
Passion has to do with the mind, the effects of excitement, worry, agitation of the mind; passion has to do with desire, fear, hope, joy, grief, love, and hatred.
Passion is the violent agitation of mind, mainly motivated by an offense, a transgression, an injury or insult; from this time, comes violent anger.
Passion is an eager desire, zeal; ardor (extreme love) and intense desire.
So when we think about the Passion of Christ, remember what He went through for us. 1 Peter 2:24 “and He Himself bore (carried) our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to (our) sin (s) and live to righteousness; for by His wounds (welts) you (and I) were healed.
