Can I really serve God with enthusiasm? I thought the Christian life was supposed to be serious.

Joshua 22:5“Love the Lord your God, walk in all his ways, obey his commands, hold firmly to him, and serve him with all your heart and all your soul.”

2 Samuel 6:14And David danced before the Lord with all his might.

Ephesians 3:18And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.

There are areas of the Christian life that are very serious—sin and its consequences, church discipline, and fighting the presence of evil. But there is also a great delight in knowing that the God of the universe loves us, has a plan for us, and made this wonderful world for us. In fact, he tells us to serve him enthusiastically—joyfully and with a great sense of delight. God understands that enthusiasm lights the fire of service.
