“His disciples remembered that it was written, ‘Zeal for Your house will consume Me’” (John 2:15).
Most have in mind a picture of Jesus that is without biblical basis. He is envisioned as being somber; lacking in passion. Thus, many are surprised to discover that scripture portrays Jesus as a man of great zeal for the things of God; an enthusiastic faith. Might it, then, compel us to embrace, live, and portray our faith with the same vitality and dynamism as did Jesus. A consuming faith is a compelling faith.
