28 Days of Joy - A Devotional
Joy – we sing about it, we experience it, but all too often it is that indefinable quality that we enjoy but don’t know how we get it or what to do to maintain it. This devotional will explore many aspects of joy and we will look at a number of principles found in the Bible that help us to grow this fruit of the Spirit as we walk in faith.
We start these devotions by exploring the Joy of Walking in the Spirit and with that we go on to explore the Joy of Serving, followed by the Joy of Righteous Living. The first half about our walk and the joy that comes through being in obedient service to the Lord in his kingdom.
In the second half we are focusing more on the Joy of His Presence, the Joy of His Promises and Joy in the Hope of Deliverance. These devotions will look at how he blesses us with joy in every way as we walk by faith with him.
For 28 days we explore the subject of Joy. During this time you will find your understanding of joy being enhanced as you establish new principles in your daily walk as you are on your journey of faith.
Day by day we explore different passages of Scripture which give us insight into how we can have the fruit of joy in our faith walk. All together there are 28 days of devotions on the virtue of joy. You won't want to miss one day of this devotional so we have made the entire book available to you for free.

Service Produces Joy
His lord said unto him, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou has been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord." - Mathew 25:21
Jesus was telling a parable of a lord who had trusted certain of his wealth to three of his servants. Each of the servants had been proven to be trustworthy and faithful, but each had different abilities. He gave one a small amount, another more and to the other much more.
The servant who had received a small amount had little faith in his ability to do well with his master's money. Afraid that he would lose it in the marketplace he decided to just hold on to it until his master returned.
The other two servants, feeling empowered by the trust their lord had shown them, went to the marketplace to buy and sell. they were prudent in their service and when the master returned they had doubled the money.
When the master returned to check on his investment he was met with mixed results. The one servant who had received little had done nothing with what he had been given. The lord was very upset with him and he fired the servant on the spot, sending him away with nothing.
The other two was a different story. They had both been faithful to use what their master had given them and their service paid off. Because they had proved themselves to be prudent and wise servants, the lord gave them much greater responsibility and much greater reward. He gave them his joy.
Prayer: Lord, help me to have the confidence in myself that you have in me. Grant me the grace to use the gifts and abilities you have given me for the work of your kingdom that I might have the joy of the Lord. Amen.
