Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

Romans 12:11

Translated more literally, this verse reads, “Never lack speed, but keep boiling, enslaved to the Lord.”

We are ignited by God’s Spirit, fueled from within by his power. We must not lose that power that rises up from within. We have started running this race with great inertia and we can’t lose that momentum!

Remember this: our movement, Spiritually speaking, is often out of sync with what we can achieve physically. You may be moving slowly in body but racing forward in peace and in power and in harmony with God. Likewise, we might be slow in our Spiritual growth while maintaining many worldly accomplishments. We have been empowered by God.
