Romans 12:11


Rom 12:11 (niv) Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

“The word “fervor” is usually applied to water, or to metals so heated as to bubble, or boil. It hence is used to denote ardor, intensity, or as we express it, a GLOW, meaning intense zeal” (Barnes).
“Do nothing at any time but what is to the glory of God, and do every thing as unto him;” (Clarke) (Col 3:23).
Our passion, or our first love (Rev 2:4), should always be focused on Jesus and the things of heaven not the things of this world (John 17:15-16, Rom 12:2, 2 Cor 10:3-4, Col 2:8, 3:1-2, Titus 2:12, Jas 1:27, 1 John 2:16).
Our sole purpose for living, as spirit filled Christians, is to shine God’s light (our zealous GLOW), as a witness to the world (Matt 5:14, 16:15, Eph 5:8, 1 Thess 5:5).
So, let the world see your zeal for Jesus today. 


God bless you today
