Psalm 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
Serve the LORD with gladness. This is how we are to serve the LORD. When did this get distorted? In His presence is fullness of joy. He doesnt need our reluctant service. That only hurts us. Oh what a delight to experience Him as we serve. Oh how He lifts all heavy burdens as we serve Him. Why some display service to God as depressing, burdensome? I have been blessed with the same exciting passion to learn and teach Gods word as I did as a young christian after my conversion. If Im bent out of shape, Im not able to serve the LORD to anybody, not even myself.
