Can I be happy in a world that is full of sadness? You are not the first to ask that question. Many people feel that way whether they say it or not. If you are anything like me. You could be feeling fine and your day is going great. You come home sit down on the sofa and turn on your television and you hear that an Army psychiatrist has killed many people at Fort Hood.
Then all of your happiness has now turn to sadness. So you change the channel and you see stories of more violence and death. And you ask yourself “Can I really be happy in a world full of sadness” If my happiness and peace would be contingent on what’s going on around me than the answer is no. But my happiness is not purely based on my circumstance or what’s going on around me. It is based on my personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 1st Corinthians 15:19 says that “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable”.
What that means is if we only have hope in the life that we are currently living then we(Christians) are most miserable. We have hope in the life after we die. Which is spending eternity with God and His son Jesus Christ in Heaven. Some people think that Heaven is some fairy tale or a make believe place but it is not it is real. But the only way to spend eternity with God in Heaven is to accept his only begotten son Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Not only will you spend eternity with God but you will have peace regardless of what’s going on. Isiah 26:3 says Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
So how do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Just say these words. Heavenly Father: I come to you in prayer asking for the forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my mouth and believe with my heart that Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven and have Eternal Life in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Father, I believe that Jesus rose from the dead and I ask you right now to come in to my life and be my personal Lord and Savior. I repent of my Sins and will Worship you all the day’s of my Life! Because your word is truth I confess with my mouth that I am Born Again and Cleansed by the Blood of Jesus! In Jesus Name, Amen
