"A Zealous Love" - Greg Laurie Daily Devotion - Aug

Here is the first ring. GOD loves the world and asks us to live in the world, even if we are not only of the world. GOD loves the air and the birds and the beasts. We are called to be zealous in our love of the environment. You have all probably heard jokes about people who claim they are able to worship on the golf course or in nature. It's true, they can. It is also true that our American tendency to individualism can keep us away from the blessing of community and that only worshiping GOD at this lowest of levels can keep us from progressing in our spiritual journey. So zealously love GOD in nature but don't stop there.

GOD calls us to "church." But even that is not the limit of GOD's love for us. We cannot let institutional strength substitute for the third ring. Here is a circle of vital piety that goes beyond church. We are called to simply pray and pray some more, to pray constantly. We are called to regularly share the Lord's Supper. We are called to read and hear and meditate on the Scriptures. We are called to the much neglected duty of fasting. We are called to pay attention to the spiritual disciplines of GOD. Vital churches these days are full of small groups and people urging each other on to greater experience of ministry and depth of spiritual growth. These are important ways of participating in GOD's love for us through our zealous love of GOD.

Christians who are passionate about helping others---but aren't sure where or how to focus their energy---will find much to love about Zealous Love. Authors Mike and Danae Yankoski have written just what Christians need to integrate compassion and justice into their lives.
'Our hope,' they write, 'is that God will work through this book ... to help direct your life so that you can act on tangible concern for neighbors in need, both globally and locally. That's the prayer knit into every sentence, every word, of Zealous Love.'
Zealous Love introduces eight of the world's most pressing challenges: hunger, unclean water, HIV/AIDS, creation degradation, lack of education, economic inequality, refugees, and human trafficking. But it does more than educate. It provides real, practical, do-able steps anyone can take to help make a difference.
