Day 12 | Serve with Gladness


"Serve the Lord with gladness."  Psalm 100:2

SERVICE.  It's commanded in scripture and we are to be obedient.  It shouldn't be a burden to serve the Lord when we consider what great things He has done for us.  

Fellowship with God leads straight to obedience and good works.  That is the divine order and it can never be reversed.  --A.W. Tozer

Wanted:  Gifted volunteers for difficult service in the local expression of the Kingdom of God.  Motivation to serve should be obedience to God, gratitude, gladness, forgiveness, humility, ad love.  Service will rarely be glorious.  Temptation to quit place of service will sometimes be strong.  Volunteers must be faithful in spite of long hours, little or no visible results, and possibly no recognition except from God in eternity. --Donald Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life

Will you say, "Here am I, Lord.  Send Me!"?
