A HAPPY NEW YEAR
“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.”
Proverbs 3:13 KJV
If we want to have a Happy New Year, we need to spend more time with Jesus than we do watching television. Pastor Ira F. Stanphill wrote the beautiful inspiring hymn “Happiness is The Lord”. It is so true that knowing Jesus brings happiness to us and even more important it brings happiness to Him.
We might think that we don’t have time to spend with Jesus because of busy schedules. If our schedules are so busy we don’t have time for Jesus, we are too busy and we need to rearrange our schedules so He comes first. If we have time to read the paper in the morning, we have time to spend with Him.
May God help us to make Jesus first in our heart, in our life and in everything we do. Let’s give Jesus a Happy New Year by making Him first in our heart and in our life. If ever someone deserves to be happy, it is Jesus, the Saviour of the world. All hail, King Jesus! Worthy is the Lamb of God! Make Him happy.
