JOY & SERVING


Daily Christian Quote
One of the key things for people as far as joy is concerned is not living a selfish, self-centered lifestyle where we live our lives expecting everybody else to do something for us. ~Joyce Meyer

Galatians 5:13-14
13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Romans 12:3
For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

Psalm 32:11
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous;
      And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Psalm 118:23-24
23 This was the LORD’s doing;
      It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day the LORD has made;
      We will rejoice and be glad in it.

People, human nature, is very selfish & self centered. Human nature wants for itself. God word tells us we are to die to self and live for Christ. The above scripture highlights parts of God's word that means the most to me about loving your neighbor as yourself and not thinking more highly of ones self. HIS word tells us to rejoice & be glad in it. It being servanthood. We are not able to serve to masters. We're either going to choose self or God. Which will you choose? Enjoy the video offering.
