A Simple Way To Increase God’s Joy In Your Life | Mark Altrogge, The Blazing Center
“God gives us all his commands for our joy and gladness. God doesn’t need our praise and worship. He is completely and infinitely joyful, fulfilled, and satisfied in and of himself. He’s not some egomaniac in the sky who needs our praise to feel fulfilled, affirmed and complete. All God’s commands are for OUR benefit, OUR good, and OUR joy. Do you want to increase your joy in Jesus? Then seek to praise him and thank him as much as you can.”
