Knowing Christ Brings Happiness
Case 10: God's Purpose for His Children
What should be a Christian's joyful goal in sanctification?
A Christian's joyful goal in sanctification should be to understand and know the LORD. Jeremiah 9:23-24a – Thus says the LORD, "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me."
This Truth Makes
Some people might think that following Christ is boring or frustrating. It is pretty obvious that people who think like this are not yet ready for heaven! If someone is not happy in Christ, then he is probably not believing in the Christ of the Bible. Christ is happiness! Christ is joy! Christ is everything! If you have Him, you have something better than all the riches of the whole world.
If you know the Lord, then you have everything you need to be the happiest and most content person in the world. If you are an unhappy Christian, then you are believing wrong things. If you do not think that Christ can bring you happiness, then you are believing wrong things!
