Serving the Lord with Gladness site is dedicated to discovering and applying Bible Truth for Today & administering practical Christian Counseling for the Soul…
The Bible is the God-given Word for living. In the Scriptures we discover the how, why, and purpose for our lives. We uncover the great purpose of life – to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him known in this world. 1 Corinthians 10:31 reveals this truth by saying: “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”
Because of sin, our lives are naturally bent toward evil and wrong. With God’s Word in our hearts and Bible application made to our lives, we can change to be more like Jesus. Many Christians “Do” the Christian life, but in reality we are to “be” more like Jesus. The difference is in the “Who” we are versus “What” we do. If you are caught up in “doing” then pause and pray about “being” a Christian instead of just “doing” Christian things. It will change your life.
For the readers not sure about Jesus and Salvation, please know that salvation is a free gift accepted by faith, made possible by the grace of God. I encourage you to consider your eternity. Have you received the gift of eternal life that Jesus shed His blood on the cross and died to provide to you? Are you depending on good works to save you, or the grace of God? Please go to “How to go to Heaven” to find out more.
Along the way of life, Christians should serve the Lord with gladness. Psalm 100:2, one of my favorite verses in the Bible says: “Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.” This is the model of ministry that I strive for in our church ministry and it is the mindset that my family seeks in our home. Serve the Lord with a smile on your face. May the simple thoughts on these pages be a help to you.
