For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.
The Student Bible Dictionary (P. 253) defines zeal as "enthusiasm, eagerness (59:17), or it can be inaccurate or misdirected (Romans 10:2)". For our discussion we will focus on the eagerness as it relates to God's desire for all men to be saved. Men can and will be saved through the preaching, teaching and witnessing the gospel of Christ.
How the word of God is proclaimed the world over? God has always had His spokespersons eager to proclaim the gospel to lost souls of this world. There are noted spokespersons in both the Old and New Testament as well as today who eagerly proclaim the gospel message of salvation and is willing to travel far and near witnessing Christ. Many of God's spokespersons have suffered both then and now for proclaiming the gospel, but persecution failed to dampen their commitment of spreading the gospel of Christ.
There is no enthusiasm like spreading the gospel of Christ and bringing others to believe on His holy name and His atoning work on Calvary's cross taking away the sins of the world.
Let's shout for joy I have the love of God within me and I am eager to share His love with the world as I am wearing His breastplate of righteousness and helmet of salvation.
