Happiness Is Found in Christ Alone

Happiness Is Found in Christ Alone

“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are.”                        Eph 1:11 

Where can you find happiness? (1) Not in unbelief. Atheist Voltaire wrote, “I wish I had never been born.” (2) Not in pleasure. Lord Byron wrote, “The worm, the canker, and the grief are mine alone.” (3) Not in money. When dying, Jay Gould, the American multimillionaire, said, “I am the most miserable man on earth.” (4) Not in possessions and fame. Lord Beaconsfield, who enjoyed more than his fair share of both, wrote, “Youth is a mistake, manhood a struggle, old age a regret.” (5) Not in military glory. Alexander the Great conquered the world. Having done so, he wept in his tent, saying, “There are no more worlds to conquer.” So where can happiness be found? In Christ alone! “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (Jn 10:10 NIV). There’s a jellyfish that loves to swallow a certain snail because it tastes delicious. The problem is, the snail has a hard shell and the jellyfish can’t digest it. So the snail keeps growing, and begins to eat away at the jellyfish. By the time the snail is fully grown it has consumed the entire jellyfish. In life, a lot of the things we desire, pursue, and think will be good for us actually end up consuming us—things like materialism, position and achievement. Don’t end your life feeling empty, having your insides eaten away by a quest for things that can’t make you happy. God has a wonderful plan for your life (See Jer 29:11). Spend time with Him today and let Him tell you about it.
