Isa 59:16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. 17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.
Jesus is described in an OT prophecy of Him as being clad with zeal as a cloak (Is. 59:1). It is said of Him as He is observing the gap between God and man. When He saw man’s need and the gap between God and man, He didn’t leisurely, indifferently, or casually rise up and stand in the gap. He rose up in zeal.
The church is, for the most part, leisurely, indifferent and casual. Leisurely means to be without haste; unhurried; having free or spare time with no hurry; not occupied or engaged. Indifferent means: having/showing no interest, concern or feeling; uninterested; apathetic. Casual is defined as: to be careless, nonchalant, indifferent; acting without a plan or method; aimless, unpredictable.
God desires us to have fire and zeal:
In praying for others Col. 4:17; Isiah 59:16, 17
For doing good works Titus 2:14.
In loving others 1 Peter 4:8.
For God’s House Ezra 7:23; John 2:17.
For God’s cause Numbers 25:11.
For spiritual gifts 1 Corinthians 14:12
