“Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord” (Romans 12:11, NIV)
Zeal is simply another word for passion. I’ve noticed that too many people today have lost their passion and enthusiasm for life. At one time, they were excited about their dreams and got up every day with purpose and passion. But now, because time has passed and they’ve experienced disappointments, they’re not excited about those dreams anymore. They’ve lost their fire.
