Zeal vs Fear

In II kings 10, there is a passage of Scripture which describes one of Israel's Kings.
King Jehu has always amused me.
If chariots had Nascar, King Jehu would win it. He is described as driving furiously and like a madman. In fact, he invited a passenger to ride in his chariot for the sole purpose of showing his "Zeal for the Lord".

The earlier post about the crazy water slide near Buffalo River could have easily been used as a set-up to talk about living dangerously.
Live life to the fullest!
If you are sitting on the edge, you are taking up too much room!
Live large for the Lord!

What makes some one get up in the morning with a plan to change the world?
How do you "get" zeal?
Don't ask me,..... because it was just a couple of hours ago when I had to tell myself out loud to "get your lazy depressed hiney out of this bed".

Oh for the courage to get in the front of the water slide train!
I don't want to be working in the shack with a few puny rules which no one pays attention to.
I don't want to be a spectator.
I don't want to be a passenger with someone else holding the reins.
I want to be the one who extends my hand and says,.."Come with me and let me show you my Zeal for the Lord"

Woo Hoo!!



I am a frazzlin full time effort for God.
