A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.
(Proverbs 15:13 (NIV))
Why do so many people who profess a faith in Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior walk around with such doom and gloom on their faces?
It just doesn’t make sense!
We have been given the greatest gift that could ever be given. We have been given salvation and grace when we deserve death due to our sinful nature. Our death sentence has been commuted. We are free from the bondage of sin and death, yet so many who profess a faith in Jesus don’t seem happy and joyful at all.
Are you happy?
Do you wake up every day and give thanks to the Lord for what He has done for you? Do you give thanks to the Lord because you woke up? Do you find joy in God’s Word and in His promises? Are you thankful for the sun on your face and the wind in your hair? Are you joyful at the site of family and friends, and are you truly joyful to gather with the Body of Christ to worship and praise the Lord? In other words, do you have joy deep within your heart because you are His?
What does your face show?
