Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘I am zealous for Zion with great zeal; with great fervor I am zealous for her.”’ – Zech. 8:2

God is zealous for His people. He is, “…zealous…with great zeal!” God spared no expense to redeem you: mind, body, spirit and soul! God sent His Only Son, born in a manger, to live a perfect life and die in your place; “…that whoever believes in [Jesus] should not perish but have everlasting life” (Jn. 3:16)!

God is fiercely in love with you. Are you ready to love Him back?

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. – Is. 9:6-7

Prayer:

Father, thank You for the gift of Your Son Jesus Christ. Thank You for being zealous for me! Help me to be zealous back: to give my life fully and completely to You, in Jesus’ name!
