Zeal for God

Much of the zeal I lot for evangelism was because of someone from a campus ministry who vexed my spirit in telling me that using the Law of God is wrong. He knows who he is. I now have to seek to regain the zeal, much of it through anger directed at this particular person. He has vexed my spirit and yet asks "why are you so angry?". Such is a condescending question, that which is only asked for those whom are angry at nothing. However, this is a case of being angry at something. He now pays by having to endure the effects of a vexed spirit that he caused. He even criticises my zeal, saying it is "worrying".

Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy (Numbers 25:11).
