God’s good pleasure is for us to be ever involved in Kingdom work, always serving and being an extension of Him to others. But what usually happens is that we put limits and conditions on them to suit us. We’ll serve others…but only when it’s convenient. We’ll pray…but only when we feel like it. We’ll thank God and be glad…but only in situations that benefit us. But this is not what Paul was trying to get across here. God’s Will is that we love one another, and within that there is no room for self-centeredness. For our lives should be broken bread and poured out wine…filled with joy, and gratefulness to a Savior Who first loved us. And our communion with Jesus should be as natural as taking our next breath, for He is the only constant in our lives. Situations, circumstances, and people change…but God will never change…and in that we can rejoice!
