It’s that time of year.  The sound can be deafening.  You can’t even hear yourself think.  Why?  You’re at a college football game surrounded by a gigantic cloud of the home team’s colors and its enthusiasts that fought traffic, paid unholy prices for concessions, sat on hard, cramped metal bleachers for hours, barked like dogs, chomped like gators, rang cowbells, or sang “Rocky Top” over and over.  And over.  And over.  When it comes to many college football fans, the word “zealous” pops into my mind.  A dictionary defines “zealous” as “actively and unreservedly enthusiastic.”  Yes, that’s exactly what you’ll see in college stadiums across the country tomorrow…totally active and unreserved enthusiasm!  Now that’s something to ponder.  There’s nothing unspiritual about being a fan of college football, but what happens in our lives when it comes to serving our Lord?  Paul writes in Titus 2:14, “Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”  The Word says we are “peculiar.”  That simply means “being beyond the usual.”  It also says we are to be “zealous.”  That has the idea of possessing a burning enthusiasm for His service.  You will see a lot of “active and unreserved enthusiasm” at football games on Saturdays, but what will you see on Sundays in God’s house?  What will you see in our lives during the week?  Is your life driven by a beyond-normal, burning enthusiasm to please our Savior and win others to Him?  We clap, cheer, and bark for “them Dawgs” (or for whatever pursuit you love), but what will we do and how will we do it for God this week?  Let’s be zealous for the cause of Christ!
