Rejoice in Him

joyful man

Christians are supposed to be happy persons! Our generation has become well versed in Christian terminology, but is remiss in the actual practice of Christ’s principles and teachings. Hence, our greatest need today is not more Christianity but more true Christians. The world can argue against Christianity as an institution, but there is no convincing argument against a person who, through the Spirit of God, has been made Christlike. Such a person is a living rebuke to the selfishness, rationalism, and materialism of the day. Jesus said to the woman at Jacob’s well, “Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.” This sin-sick, disillusioned woman was the symbol of the whole race. Her longings were our longings! Her heart-cry was our heart-cry! Her disillusionment was our disillusionment! Her sin was our sin! But her Savior can be our Savior! Her forgiveness can be our forgiveness! Her joy can be our joy!

Prayer for the day

My soul delights in You, my God, and my Redeemer.

    I agree with everything said here except the first sentence. Christians are not always happy and that is OK. I believe this expectation is why so many real Christians plaster their faces with fake smiles but their eyes say differently. There are numerous places where Christ was not happy. He wept over Jerusalem, He cried out to God in the Garden of Gethsemane, etc. But did He have hope, peace, and joy? Yes! We are to rejoice at all times but that is not the same as being happy at all times. Even when we don’t feel like rejoicing we are to do just that and God hears us and is pleased . I’m not against being happy. I love being happy! It’s just that it is OK to not be happy all the time.
