Diamonds to Receive:
The Joy of Service
Joy In Service
What are your yearnings? Desires? What is it that brings
satisfaction and joy? Ps. 40:8, "I delight to do Your will, O my God, and
Your law is within my heart." Real joy is found in serving Him. We like to
put value on the services that we do but I Cor. 4:2 states: "Moreover it is
required in stewards that one be found faithful." Lots of work and
Joy in service. Many times Christian literature is just thrown away, and we wonder if we should be discouraged or faithful. I remember handing an older gentleman tracts a good number of times. His
English was very poor; but one day he asked me to come into the house, he got out the tracts and said he had read them and then had read the Bible verses in his Ukranian Bible but couldn't find one
reference. I helped him find it. That was joy to my heart!
This year it is 60 years since WTM registered as a mission. Through the years many thousands of people have had JOY in service whether it be through tracts, mailbox club, or another ministry. It was
exciting to put the WTM history book together and to plan the Celebration for March 31 - April 1.
