Zealous For God

Zealous For God

“Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up,     ~   Psalm 69:9a …….       

The word zeal or zealous in the Bible means to be full of emotion, passionate, deeply committed, eager, and devoted.  The scriptures teach us that God is zealous towards His people and that we’re to be zealous or full of zeal towards Him.  Jesus said, “The zeal of Your house has eaten me up.”  So, how can a person tell if they are zealous for God?  If you’re full of emotion, passionate, deeply committed, eager, and devoted to Him then you’re full of zeal for Him!
