Zeal alone is never enough.

Zeal alone is never enough.

Acts 22:4 “I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison”

“This is what I did with my zeal …

I persecuted …

I put to death …

I arrested men and women …

I threw them into prison …

I did all this with my zeal for God.

My zeal would go to any lengths to protect the Torah and His Name.”

All Paul had was zeal for God. He did not have love for humanity.

Sole passion can be dangerous. It can blind us to the truth and most definitely to grace and mercy. Passion can hurt people.

Be careful what you are passionate for. Don’t just hold on to that and nothing else as it will lead you to do things you never thought you would do.
