Serving with Joy

Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing.
Psalm 100:2

Recommended Reading
Hebrews 1:8-9


Are you involved in service at your church? When we visit those who are in need of encouragement, it should be with joy. When we watch children in the nursery or minister to preschoolers, it should be with joy. When we sing in the choir, we should have a joyful expression on our face. When we wash the dishes at home or vacuum the living room, we should do it with joy, for even the simplest acts of life are done as unto the Lord.

Joy is to our daily Christian duties what blossoms are to a rose bush or what a flag is to a flagpole. We aren't to serve the Lord with weariness, drudgery, worry, or anger—we're to serve Him with joy.

This same truth—which is worded positively in Psalm 100—is stated in the negative in Deuteronomy 28:47-48: "Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you."

How terrible to serve the Lord with any other attitude than a continual source and supply of joy! Commit to serving with joy today.


Joy improves our personalities, increases our energy, transforms our worship, and bears us through difficulties. It is joy unspeakable and full of glory.
Robert J. Morgan
