Serve The Lord With Gladness

Key Verse

“Serve the Lord with gladness, come before His presence with singing” (Psalm 100:2).

Text — Psalm 100:1-5


To serve the Lord means a lot of things, including worship. Simply put, serving God is living for Him. Every day of your life should be dedicated to pleasing Him as Jesus did while on earth. You serve God by knowing Him and doing His will – living a holy life, evangelizing, working in His house, caring for the poor and needy and using all your resources to do His work. Often, you are faced with challenges while serving God, but continue to serve with gladness. John Bunyan, was serving God but was later put in Bedford Jail. Not discouraged, there he wrote the Christian classic, The Pilgrims Progress. He says, “I was at home in prison and I sat me down and wrote, and wrote, for joy did make me write.” Can you imagine a prisoner writing with joy a book that would eventually transform millions of lives?

In our text, the psalmist challenges all believers to serve God cheerfully. Serve by living holily, singing in the youth choir, and preaching to sinners by various means. Serving the Lord with gladness delights Him and attracts His blessings upon us.


Serving God is living for Him


Are you serving God with gladness or grudgingly?

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to serve you with gladness.
