Joy

Why Do You Pursue Holiness?

Why Do You Pursue Holiness?

"What is your motivation for your struggle for holiness?

"If I do things around the house like clean up, do the dishes, or laundry because of fear that if I don't my wife will go bananas and yell at me, how much joy do I find in doing those things?  However, if I do the very same things out of love for her and out of a desire to serve her and for her joy, then how much joy do I find in doing those things?

"It is the same way with God.  If my motivation for holiness is fear, then there we find no joy.  If our motivation is love, then in that we find infinite joy."
