His Servant Is A Slave To His Joy ! ! !

    Allow the Joy of the Lord to be your strength. Jesus is with us and we are in Him, that is exactly where we must be.

    Family, As this new day dawns in our heart, allow the Joy of The Lord be your strength.  Even if we pass through the valley of the shadow of death, Jesus is with us and we are in Him, that is exactly where we must be. Anywhere else is a trap, only as His Servants remain ever near to His Presence, they will have Joy unspeakable!!

    I Corinthians 3:5, What, after all is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, whom through you came to believe--as the Lord has assigned to each his task, obedient to His commands.

    Here is a pastor's view of the previous verse:  "We must dispense with the myth that  commitment to Christ means becoming a clergyman, or that work done inside a church building or in a church organization is more holy, somehow, than work done in the market place.  Jesus came giving us the perfect example to share with those in the workplace.  This is where we can have the greatest impact for the Kingdom of God, being a humble servant, to those who need it more than the air they breathe.

    Romans 6:22, But now you are free from the power of sin and are slaves of God and His Benefits include holiness and everlasting life.

    Matthew 25:21, "Well done thy good and faithful servant, you were faithful over a few things.   I will make you a ruler over many things, Enter into the Joy of Your Lord."

    Maturing through these five steps in our walk with His Spirit guiding our steps to holiness:  From salvation to discipleship, to servant hood, to a friend, becoming His son or daughter, complete indeed!
