OIL of GLADNESS
“Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”
Recently, I watched a friend prepare a salad. First, she washed and dried the lettuce leaves. Next she tore them into pieces. But the salad wasn’t ready to be served. She took a bottle of olive oil and poured it on the lettuce, flavoring it. As Christians, Christ has washed us and put us in places of service in our homes and work places. Sometimes we may feel as the lettuce – torn and shredded. But we must always remember that Christ, anointed with the oil of gladness, stands above us – ready to pour Himself into us and flavor our lives with His joy.
Lord Jesus Christ, I praise You! Pour Yourself and the OIL of GLADNESS upon me that I may faithfully and joyfully serve You.
