More of His Zeal to Consume Me

In John 2:13-17, we read:

The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.   In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there.   And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen.   And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables.   And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father’s house a house of trade.”   His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.”

What about you?   Do you feel any sense of that righteous zeal?   What has “consumed” you?
