Saturday, December 11, 2004

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
— Romans 12:11

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus made it clear that God wants us to be passionate about our Christian life. "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth." (Rev. 3:15-16) Let's live passionately for the Lord!

My Prayer...

Holy LORD and King of the Ages, I confess that I have not been on fire for you as often as I would have liked. Please kindle in me a renewed zeal and passion for you and your work in the world. In Jesus' name. Amen.
