Someone said that True happiness cannot be found. Well it may be elusive for many, but the Bible says, “If ye know these things happy are ye if ye do them.” (John 13:17). Now that is a promise that you can count on from Jesus Christ himself! Sometimes it seems that we look for love in all the wrong places. Actually we shouldn’t be looking for love but looking to love. Maybe if we tried to make others happy, and put our own desires and pursuits for happiness on the back burner, then true happiness would pursue and overtake and find us. John 3:16 was God’s and Jesus’ part, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have ever lasting life.” and 1 John 3:16, is our part. “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and that we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” Wow, what an amazing concept! What a Revelation! Could we have been going about things all wrong for such a long time, and missing the whole point? Let us try and seek not to be consoled, but to console. Let us try and not be selfish, but to be selfless. “Look not every man on his own things, but everyman also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Philippians 2:4, 5).” “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”(Galatians 6:2). We can never be satisfied by trying just to make ourselves happy. God didn’t make us that way. The only way we can find happiness is by finding Jesus and being right with God, and if we have hurt someone by our unloving, and unkind words and deeds, then we need to go to that person and make things right with them, and seek their forgiveness, and tell them that we are sorry, and then go to Jesus, and ask him to forgive us, and then we can find peace and happiness with God, and then we can help others to find the peace, and joy that Jesus brings, Amen? No peace without the Prince of Peace. If you think that you can find peace and true happiness without following this simple formula, then I want to tell you that you are deceiving yourself, and the temporary happiness that you think you have will not last. Don’t waste your time. Turn to Jesus now, he loves you more than you could ever know and he is waiting for you with open arms, if you will only turn around toward him, he will come running to you just like the father to the prodigal son.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
