“Do you desire to bring greater joy to the Father?
Maybe you are a parent, teacher, boss, pastor, or other leader in the Body of Christ and you oversee and teach people. You know the great joy you feel as a human being, when what you are teaching your children or those that you watch over is learned and demonstrated!! You know they have learned and now they are applying and living what they learned, and making the right choices in life! Those things have become part of them and it brings you joy! It is no different for the Almighty God when we learn and walk in His truth!
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth,” (3 John 1:4).
In today’s world and even in the church, there has been a high level of compromise and an increase in the acceptance of double standards, concerning what is right and wrong before God. It grieves Him when His people stray from His Word of truth, ways, and heart. Not because He is controlling or manipulating, but because He loves us and He wants the best for us. He wants us to be able to endure and finish our courses well, and we do that by standing firm and walking strong in His truth!! When we walk in truth, we are demonstrating our love to the Father, and it pleases Him and fills His with GREATER Joy!! How amazing is that!! We bring greater joy to Jehovah when we walk in His truth and not accept or operate in anything less..!!” David E. Taylor
