Does Zeal For Your House Consume Me?

For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.  Psalm 69:9a

And his disciples remembered that it is written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.  John 2:17

 Although God can be worshipped any time and at any place, there’s something about going to His house. In church our spirits connect with His Spirit and with one another. We’re free to release the cares of life and focus on Him–the object of our worship and reason for living. We greet each other, pray and sing praises. We give our tithes and offerings. We break spiritual bread by reading and listening to someone explain His word and tell us how to apply it to our lives. In the tabernacle of His presence He renews our minds, refills our spirits, restores our soul and refreshes our strength. Finally, when the lights are turned off and the doors are closed we step out empowered once more to do His will–to be salt and light.

Dear God,

May I always have a zeal for you and your house.
