Thursday, November 07, 2013 inescapable joy

On Sunday morning I preached twice at Grace Church in San Luis Obispo for my stepson, Tim, who    was traveling in India.  I had forgotten how much I loved teaching the Word since it had been ten months since I had actually stood before a congregation to teach the Word, apart from my ministry in Haiti back in May.

Here's what I want to affirm--when you do the thing God has made you for,you experience an inescapable joy that comes from carrying out the truth of Ephesians 2:10...

".. we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works that he planned in advance for us to do..."

I leave tomorrow for Haiti and I will have the unparalleled joy of standing before 400-500 Haitian brother pastors hungry for the Word--and be able to do what I was called to do--teach.

What give you inescapable joy?  Find out what it is by seeking God.  And obey Him.  Do it.  Serve Him.  Thank Him.
