“Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing” (Psalm 100:2).
With our whole hearts, and joy overflowing, we should be glad to serve the Lord!
If we cannot think of anything else for which we should be glad, we should be glad that He loved us enough to die for us–so we would have access to heaven.
For whom we truly love, we serve with a joyful heart and are glad to have the opportunity to serve. Hopefully, this is our attitude towards spouses, children, other family members and friends–who we claim to love. It is extremely difficult to “serve” someone when a person does “have” any love for them.
We say we love the Lord. Are our hearts full of joy? Are we glad to serve Him in whatever capacity He has called us? Do we have the audacity to burst into song at any given time–just because we love to serve Him? If we serve Him because of our relationship with Him, doing what He has called us to do, brings joy to us and others. There is no hardship in serving the Lord, even though the enemy is always on the attack, we know that the Lord has never forsaken us and when we are doing what He has destined us to do, He will get the glory!
It’s shouting time! Hallelujah! Don’t look back–look forward and be glad He has called you into service and let your heart overflow with the joy serving Him brings! Bless The Lord! It’s time for a praise dance–excuse me while I sing His praises as I move along this morning! Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!
