Scripture Numbers 25:  “Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest, has turned my anger away from the Israelites; for he was as zealous as I am for my honor among them, so that in my zeal I did not put an end to them.
Observation: God sees if we are zealous or not for Him. If we allow others to talk disrespectful about God or use His name in vain we should tell that person we don’t want to hear that type of talk about our God and use it as a witnessing experience telling that person what God means to us. There is so much that happens on this fallen world that dishonors God are we going to ignore it or do something that pleases out Lord?
Application: I need to be observant and have the courage to stand up for God’s honor. I need to express the way I feel about my Lord to others and stand firm to what I believe. I’m to live a godly life on this earth and I can’t do it if I allow others to think I accept their behavior without defending my God’s honor.
Prayer: My Lord fill me with the Holy Spirit and make me aware of what is going around me. Help me seek out the things that are not of you and make me zealous for your honor.
