Happy Friday Saints.
Romans 12:11 “NEVER BE LACKING IN ZEAL, BUT KEEP YOUR SPIRITUAL FERVOR, SERVING THE LORD.”
The Greek word translated as “zeal” is spoude. It means to strive; to give all; to be enthusiastic; to be earnest in accomplishing something.
Today’s Bible verse tells us to never lack the diligence and the earnest desire to SERVE THE LORD. To do what we can to maintain our SPIRITUAL FERVOR.
The Greek word translated as “spiritual fervor” is zeontes. It means to burn; to be hot; boiling hot.
A Christian’s zeal to serve God is compared to water boiling over. The picture is of someone burning hot for God.
We all have times when our spiritual fervor starts to wane, and instead of being hot, we become a little cold and a little sluggish.
Let go of whatever cools your enthusiasm for the things of God. Strive to stay hot and maintain your ZEAL for His will.
Serve Him with passion and gladness, and finish 2022 STRONG!
God bless, and lots’a love,
