1 Peter 3:13
“Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for waht is good?”
Be zealous for what is good – Am I a zealot for good? Zealot means being fanatical. Am I fanatical about good? God is good. Am I passionate for good?
You, Jesus, are the only Good in this world. Your Spirit abiding in me is truly good. Anything that can be diefined as good comes from You. You are the source of good. Am I passionate, zealous for you?
Who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? – The answer? No one. No one can snatch me out of Your hand. I am a citizen of Your Kingdom and under the authority and protection of my King and Father.
Your Kingdom is good and I am zealous for Your Kingdom, my home, Your perfect rule and government. I long to come home. “we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling,…” 2Cor. 5:2
“…we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.” 2Cor. 5:8
“My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is better. But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.” Phil. 1:23-24
Prayer: Father, there is the tug and pull of being with You, Lord God, every day. A desire to have more of You, experience You more. May this be so. But while I am here help me be zealous for You. The only Good and Righteous One.
