Zealous One

“Phineas . . .has turned back My wrath, from the children of Israel, because he was zealous with My zeal among them, so that I did not consume the children of Israel in My zeal.” Numbers 25:11

For some reason, the word “zeal” scares me a little. But maybe the lack of zeal is what should really scare me.

Thank You, O God, for sending us Your zealous Son to be pierced for our sins, turning back the outcome of a life apart from You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Turning Back

Zealous for His Father
Jesus never once
compromised holiness
compassionately cleansing
the plague
of our flesh.

Eaten Away

“Then the priest shall look at the plague after it has been washed; and indeed if the plague has not changed its color, though the plague has not spread, it is unclean, and you shall burn it in the fire; it continues eating away whether the damage is outside or inside.” Leviticus 13:55

I’ve tried to wash away “plagues” by myself. It never works for me.

Jesus, help me run to You with everything, whether it is visible to anyone else or not. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Inside Damage

What is this plague
that eats at me
– consuming my thoughts
– and activities
keeping me from all
You want me to be. . .
– time to be cleansed
– and set free.
