Cheerful Doers

Serve the LORD with gladness! (Psalm 100:2)

“God loves a cheerful doer.” — David Clarkson

How often I don’t feel cheerful about serving others.? How often I lack excitement about worshiping with the saints.? How often in my selfishness I have no desire to look to the interests of others.

Yet the Holy Spirit can empower us to serve Jesus cheerfully!

Come Holy Spirit.? Fill us with grace and joy and energy to serve the Lord with gladness.? Help us to be cheerful doers.? Make us glad to serve and sacrifice and listen to and pray for others.? Help us to work heartily as unto the Lord, not as unto men.? Help us do everything for your glory.

Make us cheerful doers.

I’m a pastor at Saving Grace Church in Indiana, PA. I’m married to Kristi, have 5 kids, and a growing number of grandkids. I enjoy songwriting, oil painting and coffee, not necessarily in that order.
