Topic: Where Is Your Zeal [Friday March 17, 2017]
“And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.” (John 2:17) KJV
Your blessing is closely linked to what you do in church. It is not enough to go to church; you must be engaged in doing something in the church. Remember, if your fire on the altar is not burning, you are disconnected from God.
In John 2, Jesus met people exchanging money and selling things in the temple. He was so angry about it that he made a whip with which he chased all of them out of the temple. Today, just as it was then, the house of God is not a place for buying and selling. You cannot make the house of God a market place.
What has eaten you up? Is it the desire for money or sex? If you see a passionate person, you will know because passion and love go together. If you don’t have love, you can’t have passion. You are passionate about what you love. Why do you think many people in the church are cold? To answer that question, you need to find out from them how much they love God.
Many people need God’s response to their call, but regrettably, their fire on God’s altar is going out or has already gone out. Your fire on the altar must always burn with intensity. I want you to win souls I want you to be active in church. And I want you to prosper. When God visits your place on the altar, let Him meet your fire alight and aglow.
Life has positive and negative influences. Somebody or something is constantly influencing a person. Who are you allowing to kill your zeal? Who is influencing you with the zeal of negativism? Your fire on the altar must not go out. Don’t allow them put it out.
I decree, nothing will put out your fire.
WORD OF WISDOM: You are passionate about what you love.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: In the name of Jesus, Father, separate me from every fire extinguishers
