NEVER BE LACKING!!!
11Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.13Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
The word zeal means enthusiastic and diligent devotion. Zeal and fervor are synonyms. These verses say never be lacking in your zeal and spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. In other words we should always be excited and constant in our service to Christ. And his Love, Mercy, and Grace give us all the reason that we need to be that way. It also tells us how we can do this. Being joyful in the hope we have in Christ, being patient in our afflictions, knowing he is with us to bear our burdens. And being faithful in our prayers, giving all the thanks and praise for everything we have in him. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and never be lacking in these things.
