There is joy in serving Jesus

2 Corinthians 11:28 , we find the Apostle Paul, chronicling all the ways he’s been beat up for Jesus — imprisonments, lashes, rods, stoning, shipwrecks, drifting at sea, sleepless nights, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure, danger from everyone everywhere (vv. 23–27). Including the daily pressure on me of my anxiety for all the churches” (v. 28).

 

Again in 2 Timothy 2:2, the Apostle Paul, in speaking to his son in the faith, Timothy, states, "And the things you have heard of me among many witnesses, the same you commit to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also".  
It’s been truly a blessing  to have been spiritually fed by great men of faith, and then in turn be able to convey to others, the blessings and challenges of God's Holy Word.


For 24 Resurrection & New Life Fellowship have been fortunate to see, many  come through its doors, to which many have gone on to start ministries, some quite successful… thus… it rejoices my heart to realize that God's Word is being passed along from generation to generation. 


The command to the Christian is to, "Grow in grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ" (I Peter 2:2; II Peter 3:18). 


There is joy in serving Jesus
As I journey on my way,
Joy that fills my heart with praises,
Every hour and every day. 
There is joy in serving Jesus,
Joy that triumphs over pain,
Fills my soul with heaven's music,
Till I join the glad refrain. 
There is joy in serving Jesus,
As I walk alone with God;
Tis the joy of Christ, my Saviour,
Who the path of suffering trod. 
There is joy in serving Jesus,
Joy amid the darkest night,
For I've learned the secret,
And I'm walking in the light.
There is joy, joy, joy in serving Jesus,
Joy that throbs within my heart;
Every moment, ev'ry hour, as I draw upon His power,

There is joy that never shall depart.
