“Men often think of commands as calculated to engender the opposite of joy, but not so with God’s commands. He who made us knows what is for our highest good.” The SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 3, p. 899


Anyone who would preach to others must themselves delight in the practice of what they preach. "The farmer that labors must be first partaker of the fruits." 2 Timothy 2:6 If we are in Christ, we have become new creatures. The new nature which God gives will love the commandments of God as Christ did. We will continually meditate on that which we love, and our meditation will lead to actions in which we delight.  


“David did not delight in the courts of kings, for there he found places of temptation to shame, but in the Scriptures, he found himself at home; his heart was in them, and they yielded him supreme pleasure. No wonder that he spoke of keeping the law, which he loved; Jesus says, "If a man loves me, he will keep my words." No wonder that he spoke of walking at liberty, and speaking boldly, for true love is ever free and fearless. Love is the fulfilling of the law; where love to the law of God reigns in the heart the life must be full of blessedness. Lord, let thy mercies come to us that we may love thy word and way, and find our whole delight therein.” The Treasury of David
