Selah Sunday - Pausing for God's Word
Christian Behavior (Part 4)

"Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;" (Romans 12:10-11)

diligence - characterized by steady, earnest, and energetic effort; painstaking, showing you care

fervent - greek word: zeo; #2204; learning fervor, fiery hot; full of burning zeal, opposite of cold, dignified, unemotional.

In a Christian context, fervent signifies a high spiritual temperature, inflamed by the Holy Spirit

Christian behavior is about being diligent, fervent
(on fire for the Lord and His word) and serving the Him.
