2 Kings 10:16
Then he said, “Come with me and see my zeal for the Lord!” So he let him ride with him in his chariot.
So we continued the work, while half of the men were holding spears from daybreak until the stars came out.
My anger overwhelms me
because my foes forget Your words.
I will not keep silent because of Zion,
and I will not keep still because of Jerusalem,
until her righteousness shines like a bright light
and her salvation, like a flaming torch.
If I say, “I won’t mention Him
or speak any longer in His name,”
His message becomes a fire burning in my heart,
shut up in my bones.
I become tired of holding it in,
and I cannot prevail.
“Go back to your home, and tell all that God has done for you.” And off he went, proclaiming throughout the town all that Jesus had done for him.
This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught the things about Jesus accurately, although he knew only John’s baptism.
2 Corinthians 9:2
For I know your eagerness, and I brag about you to the Macedonians: “Achaia has been prepared since last year,” and your zeal has stirred up most of them.
For I testify about him that he works hard for you, for those in Laodicea, and for those in Hierapolis.
1 Thessalonians 2:9
For you remember our labor and hardship, brothers. Working night and day so that we would not burden any of you, we preached God’s gospel to you.
