ZEALOUS OR APATHETIC?

Sometimes we are inclined to think that zealous people are "over the top!" We like to keep everyone at our own level, don't we? And yet, what does God want us to be like? He tells us in Revelation 3:15 that He will spew us out of His mouth if we are lukewarm. That's not a very nice word, is it? It actually means "to vomit!"

Christ Jesus Himself should be our greatest example. He was "meek and lowly" but He was also zealous for His Father and His kingdom. He was zealous for rightousness. When he saw the corruption going on in the temple He chased them out with a whip and turned over all the tables. And the disciples remembered the prophetic Scripture, "The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up" (Isaiah 9:7; 69:9; John 2:17).

It grieves my heart to see so many young people from Christian homes who are apathetic toward the things of God. They confess they are Christians, but they have more desire for worldly things than pursuing God. They'd rather watch movies than read God's Word. In fact, most of them hardly know anything of the Scriptures. They spend every spare moment on their iPod, iPhone, and texting but have little thought for God.

Dearest mothers, what are we doing? It should be our passion, with persistent prayer, to encourage them to be zealous for God. May God save us from raising apathetic, mediocre, and lukewarm young people. May Gold anoint us by the power of the Holy Spirit to raise sons and daughters who are filled with zeal, who will stand against evil, who will stand up for truth and righteousness, and do mighty acts for God.
