Christian, Are You Miserable and Lacking Joy?

You have no right to be miserable; you have no right to be lacking in joy. If you do not have the joy of salvation – I am speaking to Christians – there is only one reason. It is because you are deliberately listening to the devil rather than the word of God. You need to look again at the oneon the cross, and you must ask questions. What is he doing there? Was it an accident or was it deliberate, why was he there? What was the object? Listen to what he says: “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Mark 2:17).
