But I do not account my life of any value nor as to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus. (Acts 20:24) True joy does not come from fulfilling something of our own choosing. True joy comes from completing the course God has called you to. It comes in fulfilling that ministry which the Creator designed you for. True joy comes from being spent and poured out completely while running the course set before you, crossing the finish line at the feet of Jesus as He welcomes you into His arms. Our reward for serving Jesus is not an eternity spent in heaven. Our reward for serving Jesus is eternity spent in His presence.
Love you guys! Be Blessed!
