Romans 12:11. Do not lag in zeal, be enthusiastic in spirit, serve the Lord.

Enthusiasm is infectious. You can see this at sporting events. A few people start cheering and before long almost all the crowd is cheering together. We must ask yourselves where our zeal is for loving God and for spreading His love to others. Are we being infectious? If we don’t give God’s love to someone else we don’t really have His love. Love is not love if it is not shared. By its very nature it must be passed on. When others see enthusiasm they look to see why. When we are enthusiastic about God, Who He is, what He has done and who we are in Him we get the attention of others. When we are enthusiastic about assembling with other believers in church people will come to see why. Our question is where are we in our enthusiasm? Are we allowing our love for God through His Son, Jesus, to be infectious and spread throughout this world or are we keeping it in isolation?
