1 Peter 3:18-22; Mark 1:9-15

Let the righteous be joyful; let them exult before God; let them be jubilant with joy. Psalm 68:3

His master said to him, “Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things; I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.” Matthew 25:21

Great and awesome God, the kind of joy you bring into our lives makes us want to always lift you up in praise. Help us not to lose that disposition, but to use it to always worship and serve you with joyful exuberance. Amen.
