The Perks


"I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete" (Jn.15:11).

Does or did your job come with some perks? Health insurance? Sick leave? Vacation time? Jane and I were school teachers, and the greatest perk for our families was that we were off from work during the time that our kids were off from school. It was a true blessing. A blessed life here on earth is promised to those who make their walk with the Lord a constant one. "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the scripture has said, streams of living water will flow within him" (Jn.7:37-38). This living water is the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised to us. He gives us a calming peace and tells us not to allow our hearts to be troubled. Today's verse is the offering of joy.....The offering of His Joy, that our joy may be complete. "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear" (1 Jn.1:8). He offers us the perk of love....The perfect love that can drive away fear. Finally, he offers us the perk of service. "If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things that God may be praised in Jesus Christ" (I Pet.4:11). All of these perks certainly lead to a quality of life that is available to all who will decide to follow Jesus with an unwavering faith. Life is good.....

Have a wonderful day...Let His light shine through you.... Love mark Phil.4:11
