“Never be lacking in zeal , but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
As followers of Christ we best represent our Savior when our life is lived out with zeal and spiritual fervor as Paul shares here in Romans 12:11-12. He suggests zealous living is evident in those who serve the Lord. Our zeal shines through as evidence of our joyful hope, our patience in affliction, and our faithfulness in prayer.
Self reflection is always good. Let’s do a zeal heart check.
Heart Check Questions:
Are we serving the Lord?
Are we joyful in our hope in the Lord?
Are we patient in affliction?
Are we faithful in prayer?
Our heart check helps us to refocus and help us be more intentional about staying plugged into our power source for zeal and spiritual fervor.
Be Alert~ Stay Strong~ Pray Always
