Happy & Blest!

One songwriter writes,

There is a place of quiet rest, near to the heart of God.

Another writes,

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine, O what a foretaste of glory divine.

Both are describing the kind of faith relationship I want. I want a relationship with God that gives me peace. I want a taste of the divine, a sense of God’s presence and power at work in my life.

That’s the kind of relationship we sing about on Sunday mornings. But that’s also the kind of relationship Jesus Christ offers to those do more than sing about their faith.

Fanny Crosby says that those who choose to live their lives in Jesus, are the ones who are happy and blest. Living in Jesus involves trusting him, loving him, serving him, listening to his Spirit, and following his teachings. The more we do that, the happier we will be!
