For I can testify that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not in line with the truth.
Romans 10:2 NET
Zeal, without a true understanding of God’s Word, might look like it’s accomplishing something, but in the end it is just a bunch of activity that doesn’t draw others closer to Jesus.
Zeal will make the worker feel like they are doing something. There might be something tangible that people can point to. But does the zeal truly lead people to the Lord? Is it the Lord’s work?
Zeal, without the truth of God’s Word, is just religious activity that is based on Earthly pursuits.
But zeal, accompanied with the power and truth of the Word of God, can accomplish much for the Kingdom of God.
If you reflected on your life, what would you have zeal for? What would others say you have zeal for? Would others be able to identify the zeal for God’s Word in your life?
Ask the Lord to give you a zeal, enthusiasm for His Word. Ask Him to illuminate spiritual truth to you as you read.
The Bible is not an ordinary book. It is the very Word of God that He has given to you so that you can know Him more.
Lord, help me to be zealous and passionate for your Word. Reveal Yourself to me through Your Word so that I can proclaim You in this world.
