Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

The Gospel is on trial in each and everyone of us.

2 Corinthians 3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

Psalms 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

As the title quickly reminded me of the children's song... then i clap my hands and say Amen(y)!

“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”

“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.”
‭‭John‬ ‭15:3-5, 7-8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

There are many ways to be happy. There is the sensation of a roller coaster, the pleasure of a beautiful drive, getting married to someone you love. But the happiness in the Lord is even more special. It is more joy than happy, it is deep contentment, it is a feeling of being absolutely safe no matter where you are, it is peace.

Amen happiness often flows with circumstance and shifting sands of this life but there is constant joy unspeakable and inexpressible in his presence forever more

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭16:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
‭‭John‬ ‭5:24‬ ‭

“Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:28‬ ‭KJV‬‬

if we look to the end now by faith there is joy forever in his presence even beyond the sorrow of death

“And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:

for the former things are passed away.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:3-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

what a glorious day when all is done and has been said

Honestly, for many it could still be an enigma. Just a childhood song learned in Sunday School.
For me, a hope that wasn't in vain. Notice I didn't say "if" as the song writes, but "Are" you happy.

Paul talks of rejoicing many times, taking pleasure in, can do all things, to walk in love, speaking truth in love, things of a good report. I'd say he was happy and exhorts all to come to know why through the Gospel of Jesus Christ in his epistles. Even goes so far to reveal the believer is a living epistle themselves. I could go on and on about it, but I would hope that puts it more in perspective, so you don't feel you need to discard the question.

love this right there we are a living epistle and each day is another verse being written . We haven’t completed yet the epistle or rather haven’t been completed yet , but his words written on our heart and soul are a beautiful and powerful personal Epistle witnessing e glory and majesty of Jesus Christ the King of kings which he has called us who believe

Two more verses i can think of, at the moment, that refer to living epistles of His light

1 Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Amen ! A peace that passes understanding, a love that passes knowledge, and a joy that is unspeakable, Praise God I have His word that clearly shows it, so I can share it that others might see it and seek for themselves.

John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
and even reflections of his glorious light to the world that needs it desperately as the moon is to the sun , reflecting its light in the darkness so are we to be in this world

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
‭‭John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16‬ ‭KJV‬‬

it’s an amazing stewardship his disciples carry in this world

“And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭5:19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

But in the night sky the light of the Son reflects off the moon and stars d by the reflection of his light , the darkness in the world is illuminated though imperfect reflections of our lords glory , it yet is our purpose to glorify his name in the hearts of others

living epistles indeed we are , and as the epistles highlight dofferent details of the same message of scripture each of us have our particular strengths that are highlighted to others as we willingly reflect the light of his presence wherein we stand firm though shaking knees at times and other times collapsing before him

we recall the true story of whe. Our Lord walked among us and did all the same as an example in hard times and glory

God bless and thanks for stirring my spirit this day
