fervor for a person, cause, or object; eager desire or endeavor; enthusiastic diligence
full of, characterized by, or due to zeal; ardently active, devoted, or diligent
Do you strive for God's character? Have passion for his work? His people? Wanna see this corrupt world turn their eyes towards Jesus?
I know I lack God's compassion when I am yelling at the person in front of me on the highway. Ignoring the person who needs help. Or giving because I have to instead of wanting to.
We all fall short. But through God's mercy and my drive to be more like Him, He picks me up and pushes me forward. My prayer today is for God's zeal to overflow in my heart today and every day.
