And he said, “Come with me, and see my zeal for the LORD. So they made him ride in his chariot.” (2 Kings 10:16 KJV).
Zeal is the passion, ardor, intensity or force behind a pursuit, care, or concern. It is the ardent interest to get a task or an ideal accomplished. According to Britannica, it is “a strong feeling of interest and enthusiasm that makes someone very eager or determined to do something”. It is also described as the fervor, or tireless devotion of a person for a cause or ideal and determination in its furtherance. It is powerful Interest. According to the referenced scripture, it is germane to note that zeal could generally be observed or detected. It could be visible, perceivable, or identifiable.
Akin to how everyone is ardent or passionate about a particular subject of interest, it is important to apprehend the truth that God (also) has zeal for activities or subjects that are dear and important to Him. This is an important note and notice that could aid and help how everyman who desires to work for the Lord must gain and administer in the pursuit of serving the LORD.
The Bible, painted a clear and adept description of how our Blessed Lord Jesus performed and accomplished the assigned task of our salvation (for instance) one given to Him by the Father, the Bible says, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Beloved, it is necessary as it is important to gain grace to ascribe our respective pursuit of God, worship, and service to HIM to the gregarious, generous, and great ZEAL of the LORD. The Zeal of the LORD of Host with perform this in Jesus Name.
