_”Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.”_(Psalm 100:2)
God recognises our gladness as a ministry. Worship comes with gladness which comes from deep within our hearts. An appreciation to serve the Lord God in appreciation, must surely show forth in our day to day affairs unconditionally. Gladness is a form of service which tells God that we are content with Him in spite of the challenges that may confront us.
Wide difference prevails between Christians of this generation and this is because a group of Christians perceive of gladness as the outcome of answered prayers: the genuine ones see serving God as gladness and satisfaction in their nothingness. The joy of the Spirit of God is a fruit which God demands from all Christians because once you have Christ Jesus, you have everything it takes to be joyful.
In Philippians 4:4, we are told by the Spirit of God to rejoice always and not just for some time. Sing songs that will exalt the Lord and speak of His mightiness, praise Him for His sacrifice upon your life. This is one of the ways of revealing our gladness in the Lord to translate our nothingness before Him, into total contentment with Him. Gospel songs give glory to God, and such a gladness displayed in godly songs, is an asset which cannot be taken from a practitioner of gladness in Christianity.
Sing your gladness from the bottom of your hearts to uplift your spirit so as to keep you in wide distance from secular and satanic songs that will invite demons to your life.
*PRAYER* Heavenly Father, let me serve you with gladness in Jesus name. *AMEN*
