I was reading from 1 Kings 19 this morning.
Elijah got me thinking about zeal. It's really a cool word. There aren't a lot of Z words and zeal has to be one of the best.
Elijah replied, “I have zealously served the Lord God Almighty." 1 Kings 19:10
zeal - eagerness (marked by enthusiastic or impatient desire or interest)
and ardent(fiery, hot, shining, glowing) interest in the pursuit of something (Jesus!)
Lord, I want to be zealous. I want to live passionately for You and the things You call me to. I want to eagerly await Your return. I want to be able to say that I have zealously served the Lord God Almighty.
