Then His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up.” John 2:17
I read about Huguette Clark, a reclusive heiress who owned mansions in California and New York, though she never visited them. Instead she preferred to live in her Fifth Avenue apartment and rented a room in a local hospital, despite being in ideal health. Clark was obsessed with collecting dolls. She spent millions of dollars on dolls, doll clothes, and dollhouses! Her love for her dolls dominated her life.
We all need a passionate pursuit, some cause we can pour our lives into. But for the Christian it should be worthy of Him and touch on the eternal. People can be, and are, passionate about many things in life. Mostly politics, sports, and health, but let’s be passionate about our walk with God and advancing His work. Ask Him today for His zeal to fill your heart.
