Consumed by His House

[Tuesday, May 31]

“Let the zeal for My house burn within you. For My longing desire is to further My work through ministries and churches. Help My passion, says the Spirit, for I even call you this day to be consumed by a passion for My house.”



Prophetic Scripture:

And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up (John 2:17).

Diminishing church attendance and involvement seems to be becoming an epidemic. People have lost interest in getting deeply involved in a local church. Some of this is understandable when people have had a bad experience with church or felt like a ministry mishandled them or others. However, I always like to compare it like this: We don’t quit going to doctors or eating at restaurants because of bad experiences. Bad experiences are to be expected with anything, even in Christendom. If you get two people in any room long enough, Christian or not, there will be problems eventually! Bad experiences are par for the course, so we cannot let it excuse us from getting behind God’s ministries and local churches. None of them are perfect, but God
still has given them a starring role in furthering the Gospel, and we have to support what God endorses.

Friend, the work of God’s Kingdom is under siege. The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, but it’s the violent that take it by force (see Matt. 11:12). In other words, it’s the determined warriors of God who, in spite of setbacks or even bad experiences, are going to dig their heals in and get involved. God loves His churches and ministries, so let’s defy the odds and let a passion cause us to be consumed for His house today!


Prayer:

Father, I pray today for the success of local churches and ministries. I support them and ask You to continually show me how to do my part to have a passion and zeal for Your house. Amen.
