2 Kings 10:15-16
… he came upon
Jehonadab son of Recab, who was on his way to meet him. Jehu greeted him
and said, "Are you in accord with me, as I am with you?" "I am,"
Jehonadab answered. "If so," said Jehu, "give me your hand." So he did,
and Jehu helped him up into the chariot. Jehu said, "Come with me and
see my zeal for the Lord." Then he had him ride along in his chariot.
wants us to be zealous for good works. We are His workmanship, recreated
in Christ Jesus for good works, Eph.2:10 (AMP). Jesus gave Himself to
redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto himself a peculiar people,
zealous for good works, Tit.2:14. Good works are the expressions and
manifestations of God's life in us and they bless lives, they bring
glory to God and they attract God's rewards into our lives, Rev.22:12.
God wants us to be zealous to repent. He wants us to be quick to receive
His mercy and turn away from sin if we fall, 1John 2:1. He wants us to
respond promptly to His word whenever He corrects and chastises us. In
Rev. 3:19 (NKJV) Jesus said, as many as I love, I rebuke and chasten.
Therefore be zealous and repent.
God wants you to be zealous in spreading the gospel, Eph.6:15. Talk
about God's love and manifest His life and power with passion. Always be
ready to give an answer or speak up about your faith. …in your hearts
set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to
everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But
do this with gentleness and respect, 1Pet.3:15. By the Spirit, Peter
boldly stood up and lifted up his voice to clarify that it was the
outpouring of the Spirit that was taking place and not wine intoxicating
the disciples in Acts 2:13-16. That same Spirit is in you. Always stand
up for what is right. Be a bold witness for Christ. Don't speak, preach
or correct errors to prove that you are knowledgeable; do so to help
build up the faith of others. Do so with boldness but also with humility
PRAYER: I receive Your grace, God of Wonders, to do good works, to
yield to Your voice and to preach the gospel passionately.
