Full of Zeal

It is not the extent of your Biblical knowledge, although that is useful; it is not the mastery with which you speak, although that too is useful; it is your zeal for the will of our Father that is the fruit of the Holy Spirit. If your heart beats slowly before God, you have no zeal; but if your heart beats strong and vigorous within, eager to see the kingdom of Christ come and His will done on earth, then you are filled with Christian zeal.

Let us prove that we are Christ’s disciples; let us be filled with an unquenchable zeal for the will of our Father. Look up with anxious gaze to the glories of heaven, think time is short compared with the work to be done, and devote yourself to the cause of the Lord.

About admin

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!
