NOVEMBER 22

 

 The zeal of thine house hath consumed meóPsa. 69:9.

 

 Cold, calculating people may have other good qualities, but there is no room for coldness or even lukewarmness on the part of those who have once tasted that the Lord is gracious. With such, the love enkindled should lead to a consuming zeal. It was thus with our Lord Jesus, and this was one of the reasons why He was beloved of the Father. Let all who desire to be pleasing in the Lordís sight become so filled with the same spirit of zeal for righteousness and truth that it will consume them as sacrifices upon the Lordís altar. Thus they will be most pleasing and acceptable to Him through Jesus our Lord.
