Romans 10:2 - For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.


For those who have been Catholic or worshiped in a denomination that related to - you know this is the Lenten Season.  It’s 40 days before easter.  Starts right after the orgy and bacchanalia which is Mardi Gras - ending on Fat Tuesday.  All man made stuff. 


40 days- ceremonious stuff -giving up stuff, man made rules 


I have learned that sometimes having too much information gives you a paralysis of analysis.


You don’t know who to trust.


You latch on to things that you like and can understand, YouTube videos, speakers, IG people, and you integrate that into your faith.  But it is not biblical, it is not sound doctrine.

I heard that…

  • This guy on tik Tok said…
  • I don’t have to go to church because…
  • I don’t have to support a ministry because they are all crooks, you heard that ministry trying to get a plane?
  • God knows my heart…

The devil lives for our passion, our burn out, our losses … 


When we start new things, our faith walk included -join a new church,  many were eager to learn, respond, and volunteer. Over time, however, eagerness waned. They lost their zeal.


What is Spiritual Zeal?

Spiritually speaking, at the beginning of our relationship with the LORD, we were eager, too. Our hearts were challenged and changed; we mourned over our wrongs, immediately sought forgiveness from God, and changed our ways.

We felt clean! We were excited! We wanted to pray, witness, read God’s Word, do good works, influence our world, and honor the Lord in any way we could!

How do we renew and keep our zeal for him? That was precisely the concern of the Israelites. What they did may serve as an example to help us.

Rev. Kenn Blanchard 




Four ways to keep our zeal

Nehemiah told them this was not a time for grieving; this was a time for rejoicing, for they were seeking to obey God and were enjoying his favor! Their grief turned to joy.  Nehemiah 8:9-12 (NASB)


1. Keep our zeal by making a commitment

2. Keep our zeal by holding ourselves accountable

3. Keep our zeal by assigning responsibilities

4. Keep our zeal by being attentive



Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. (Romans 12:1- 2, 10- 11, NIV)


Don't watch the clock; do what it does. ...



Just because you're taking longer than others does not mean you're a failure. Keep going.”
