Zeal, either the interest and passion burns within you, or it does not. You can’t fake zeal, just like you can’t fake true love. Zeal will come when you open your mind, heart and soul to God and place Him first in your life. It will light a fire within you when you give your life over to God, completely, for Him to do with as He wills. Zeal will abound. You will feel compelled to openly profess your faith with the zeal of the saints.
Zeal: Is your heart afire for Christ?
If you’re not quite feeling the passion, but would like to, then open your mind, heart and soul to God. Align your will with His will. Allow Him to work within you. Stop resisting Him! I know that is easier said than done. However, remember that God always has your best interests at heart. After giving your heart to God, watch the transformation that begins to take place within you and around you, for you will become a different person filled with Christ.
Feeding the Flame of Zeal
If you are beginning to feel the flame of passion for God and the faith, but don’t know what to do with it, check out Christlife.org. This website has a wonderful three-part educational program that enables participants to discover Christ, follow Christ and share Christ with others. You can bring this program to your church and offer it to your entire congregation.
If you are already on fire for the Lord, then congratulations! May the Spirit always be with you, guiding your every step. May you bring many souls to Christ.
With zeal for God in your tool belt of virtues, you are well on your way to sainthood!
