~Colossians 3:23-24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
As parents, we can see life through our children, can’t we? For example, you tell your children to go clean up their rooms. One child stomps his foot on the floor and cleans his room but with a lot of attitude. The other one immediately does as he is told and does a great job. It’s not difficult for you to see which child brought much joy to his parents.
It is no different with Christians. How many of us serve the Lord grudgingly? How many of us serve Him because we love Him and are delighted to serve Him? When we serve Christ with gladness of heart, it is a testimony to the unbeliever. They see our joy for themselves and it attracts them. They want what we have – the joy of the Lord!
Won’t you serve the Lord with gladness today?
