Keith Green - Oh Lord, You're Beautiful

Friday, October 25, 2013


There are countless people in our world today who are chasing and looking for happiness in all the wrong places.

In Matthew 5, Jesus describes the way to meaningful and lasting happiness is having the right relationship with God our Creator.

When traveling other pathways in your pursuit of happiness, they will only take you on a long journey to nowhere.

The beginning point of happiness is...................

accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour of your life and is outlined for you in God’s Eternal Word.
His path to happiness is found in Psalm 34 and when followed............ leads to all the advantages we need in this world.
Advantages that can be ours no matter whether we are rich or poor, healthy or sick, famous or unknown. Genuine happiness, a mood of contentment, joy, and hope, doesn’t even depend on where you live;
however,............... it does depend on a right relationship with God.

I’m mindful of the chorus we sing in our church, which speaks of a personal relationship with God’s Son:

Happiness is to know the Saviour,
Living a life within His favour,
Having a change in my behaviour,
Happiness is the Lord.

Happiness is a new creation,
Jesus and me in close relation,
Having a part in His salvation,
Happiness is the Lord.

Real joy is mine, no matter if teardrops start;
I've found the secret, it's Jesus in my heart!

Happiness is to be forgiven,
Living a life that's worth the living,
Taking a trip that leads to Heaven,
Happiness is the Lord,
Happiness is the Lord,
Happiness is the Lord!

Hymn writer Floyd Hawkins wrote, “I’ve discovered the way of Happiness. I’ve discovered the way of joy. I’ve discovered relief from sadness …When I found Jesus my Lord.” Only He can give happiness and joy that is full (John 15:11)

Lasting happiness doesn’t come from earthly things but only from Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Bless you and thank you Mikey.
