"Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up, and the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me." - Psalm 69:9 "for he [Apollos] vigorously refuted the Jews publicly, showing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ." - Acts 18:28 We see the perfect example of the zeal for serving God and standing for the truth in Christ. He confronted the Jewish authorities for their hypocrisy and He even drove out the people selling and making business in the house of the Lord. In the book of Acts we see another disciple, Apollos, refuting the authorities and standing for the truth. In fact, after Jesus' ascension, we see all disciples were bold in proclaiming the truth of the Gospel and served the Lord with zeal. We live in a time where the we need to stand for the truth and serve the Lord with zeal. When we love the Lord with all our heart, we will have the zeal to serve Him, no matter the price. Let's pray for the zeal and boldness that we need to stand for the truth in a time when the power of darkness is overshadowing the truth. Praise the Lord!
