The Happiest People On Earth

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 (NKJV)

Some people have the false perception of Christianity as a stern, severe, and joyless lifestyle. We all need to show them that this perception is not true by being kind, loving and respectful to all that we meet. Every person is very important to God and every person should be very important to us!

Those of us who love and serve God and His Son Jesus Christ, should be the happiest people on Earth—all our sins are forgiven and we have all received the gift of eternal life! Look again at the well-known scripture in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Christians have the Holy Spirit within them and one of the fruits of the Spirit is joy (Galatians 5:22). Every person wants to be happy, so if they see truly happy Christians, perhaps they will be open to learning about and receiving Jesus for themselves. Remember again the scripture in Matthew 5:16 which says to let our lights shine—show the world that we are the happiest people on earth!

Prayer
Father God, please help us by the way that we live our lives to show the world that Jesus Christ is the way to find true happiness.
Amen
