WHY ARE CHRISTIAN'S SO UN-HAPPY? JUNE 10, 2021
Why are so many Christian's unhappy? Is it because they are wanting someone to make them happy; a husband, wife, son, daughter or just a special friend. Even our youth experience this as they grow older, they want a boyfriend, girlfriend or just a best friend, "will make me happy!"
Why is this so prevalent today? People, even Christian's are seeking something they do not have, like an empty void inside of them that is crying to be filled.
All people are basically the same, motivated by the senses of the flesh, the things we see around us, the people we live around and come in contact with. As a Pastor, I find that there are always people that God places in our lives to help us grow naturally and spiritually. And yes, they will fail you miserably at times, and we remember the hurts, and those that disappoint us. The battle rages in our minds and there seems to be no end to it as long as we live.
Our happiness should be established on a stronger foundation by remembering the love you experienced when Christ came into your heart. You knew your sins were gone, something had changed inside of you and the whole world looked different. Go back there, renew that love, disappointments will begin to look different, and you happiness may return.
And, if you have never had that experience Christ, why not earnestly start now? Quoting William Branham; "...just this life alone, you have no satisfaction, no eternal happiness, until you are anchored in Christ.."
