As a third-century man was anticipating death,
he penned these last words to a friend which remain true today:
“It’s a bad world, an incredibly bad world.
But I have discovered in the midst of it, a quiet and holy people who have learned a great secret.
They have found a joy which is a thousand times better than any pleasure of our sinful life.
They are despised and persecuted, but they care not.
They have overcome the world. These people are Christians — and I am one of them.”
Dear one, happiness is like the moon. It shines brightly and then clouds over.
But Joy is like the sun – always shining even when night falls or clouds cover it.
Happiness comes from humans - joy is from God. It’s one of His attributes!
Friend, when you invite Jesus into your heart, God’s joy is just a prayer away.
