Zealous

 

You are zealous
for Jerusalem

comforting her
again

showing her
great mercy

building Your house
within.

**********

I am zealous for Jerusalem, for You are with me.

**********

“I am zealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with great zeal.”

” ‘I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; My house shall be built in it,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘and a surveyer’s line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem.’ “

“My cities shall again spread out through prosperity; the LORD will again comfort Zion, and will again choose Jerusalem.”

Zechariah 1:14,16,17 NKJV

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.

Oh That All

“Then Moses said to him, ‘Are you zealous for my sake? Oh that all the Lord’s people were prophets and that the Lord would put His Spirit upon them.’ ” Numbers 11:29

Two men stayed behind while the rest of the elders went with Moses to receive a portion of God’s Spirit. When the slackers received God’s Spirit too, some in the camp weren’t happy about it.

Lord, may I rejoice in whoever receives You, wherever they are. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Good Now and Good Later

Some start to
believe and follow
from a young point
in their lives.
Others fall hard
on the road
blinded like Paul
with Christ.
