Giving to God: The Joy of the Spirit

Luke 10:1-24                          March 9, 2014                         Link for audio/video/manuscript

The disciples had much to be joyful about. In giving of themselves to God by following Jesus they had joy of knowing the power of God through Jesus Christ in their lives, the joy of knowing Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of their lives, and the joy of knowing that God is absolutely sovereign in and over and through everything in life. And because God is sovereign in and over and through all things, they were blessed to see what many wanted to see but were not able to see. We are blessed in the same way. Like the disciples we are called to graciously give of ourselves as God sacrificially gave to us through Jesus Christ. And when we do give of ourselves to God, we will know the joy of the Spirit of seeing people coming to faith in Jesus Christ!
