Joy is the raw material that produces good work
2 Corinthians 8:2 – How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
Whenever we speak of doing good deeds, especially giving, we speak of it most times as though it is obligation. But we see from our key scripture the root of an outpour of good works…its nothing but joy. Once joy fills your heart, it will always produce good work. For a believer, joy comes from one source, and one source only, the Holy Spirit. He does this by reminding us of the assurance we have of salvation and Gods love. He reminds us of the abundant grace shown to us, and amazing help offered to us by Jesus.
Let joy fill your heart. Don’t try to be good; let joy bring out the good in you.
#pray Father help me to always live in your joy, and watch it flow out like a spring to bless others.
