“At that same time Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, and he said, “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way.”
Luke 10:21, NLT
As Jesus taught His disciples and listened to their reports, the Bible says He was “filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit.” When we seek to follow after Christ with our lives, we bring joy to the Lord. What an incredible legacy to leave – knowing that our time here on earth brought God joy! Every day we are given opportunities to serve others, minister to the lost, and comfort the hurting. Today let’s seek to make the most of those opportunities. Pray that the motivation of our hearts will be to glorify God and that the joy of the Lord will be so evident in our lives that it draws others to Christ and brings a smile to God’s face.
