SERVE THE LORD WITH GLADNESS
Matthew 5:12 “Be glad and supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong & intense), for in the same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you.”(AMP)
“For when we serve in gladness God will reward us,” the Holy Spirit quickened.
The Scene: multi-jeweled crown, a representation of heavenly reward.
Proverbs 10:6 “Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.”
James 1:12 ” Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised those who love him.”
Revelation 3:12 ” Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God.”
Those who are born again may say, 2 Timothy 4:8 “Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award me on that day–and not only me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”
