Always keep in mind that we serve a Person. It is his plan to cause us to believe that it may slip from our grasp. I believe that Satan always tries to induce us to regard it as such. He cannot slip from our grasp. This wonderful experience of being born again. We go to sleep at night feeling that we might lose ground even while we sleep. That is why I like to dwell upon the abiding Christ rather than the fullness of the Spirit.

Kathryn Kuhlman:How to Be Filled and Controlled By the Holy Spirit

It is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who comes. He has promised. But this is not so. I often wonder if this position comes from regarding the victorious life as a blessing or a possession we can forfeit or lose. We awaken in the morning thinking that we must be very careful through that day and put forth every effort. Once it was the feeling. Someone put it so wisely: That is where the danger comes in. But as long as we are willing for Him to keep us. He is a willing Guest. Looking unto Jesus in faith and love does not use or demand strenuous effort on your part to retain Him.

The minute we are no longer willing for Him to keep us. Jesus keeps us. We must be willing to be kept. He is a willing Lord. He is able to keep me. We do not have to keep Him. He is a willing Savior. Of course. Once His gifts I wanted. It is not we who keep Him. I am talking to you about a life of victory. Your look. He is the Rock of Ages.

They seem to be straining. At every alarm. It is not looking to Jesus through strained eyes. Rest entirely and completely in the Lord. It isn't like that. Relax in His goodness. Rest peacefully in Him so far as your life of victory is concerned.

It makes all the difference in the world. It is not by self 39 effort nor by toiling and striving. It's that simple! I may remark in passing that even our conflict with evil around us — and I know the powers of the enemy are great. The Word of God reminds us: You cannot separate the two. Then let us go on from there: In the 37th Psalm.

In our Lord's mind was something more than physical stature. And you cannot trust in God without doing good for the two go hand-in-hand.

It is through the week that we are confronted with all the problems and the difficulties. Trust in the Lord. If you are not doing good. It is not our faith but His faithfulness that maintains the victorious life. I know the temptations and the frustra-. It may not be easy to remain harmless as a dove and relax in Christ in your hour of frustration and with the circumstances under which you have to live.

How does Jesus proceed? Does He say. There are those who. I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves" Matthew How remarkably this is brought out in our Lord's instructions to His disciples when He said. Because He is our defense. He is our shield. Sometimes it is not easy to commit everything unto Him.

Now may I point out another truth: He doesn't say that! He continues by saying. Now look at this more closely. Be ye therefore armed to the teeth? You are an heir of God. He will do all in his. Only one man has ever lived an unbroken victorious life.

When someone stands behind the pulpit and teaches that there will no longer be temptations after this wonderful new birth experience. But life isn't like that! You were converted but the devil wasn't. Adam and Eve. You may feel as though the devil got converted. Perhaps I was the one who led them in the sinner's prayer and as they got up from their knees.

So we need not be surprised that the devil tempts us. I said to them: And the Word of God states that Jesus was tempted in all points like as we are. You are somebody! He will wait for that moment when we are vulnerable and it is then that he will strike. You and I think we have seen wonderful miracles but that was one of the greatest miracle services that ever took place. At one moment he was a great spiritual giant.

I'm sure I would have been urging him on. I'm sorry I missed it! You and I have seen sick bodies healed by the power of God. He has no principles whatsoever. But remember: Greater than anything you or I have experienced or witnessed was the occasion when Elijah stood before the prophets of Baal.

Had I been there while Elijah was defying the gods of the false prophets. He was human and the devil was waiting for that weak moment to attack him. The prophet Elijah knew that. Isn't that wonderful! But I'll tell you something. He will do all in his power to drag us down because the victorious life is the only one that really counts. In that moment of Elijah's despair. There was no spiritual weakness. Elijah prayed to die. The weakness was in the flesh and God knew it.

Did He forget or forsake him? He just let him sleep. But we can count it all joy. That's what our Heavenly Father is like! But I want you to see and never forget that the power of the enemy very often comes when our physical strength is weakest.

The devil attacked Elijah when God's servant was tired in body and he assaulted him through the weakness of the flesh. How quickly and easily we. Just a few hours after that glorious victory on Mount Carmel. That is the reason why I say to you again: No matter what happens. Jezebel is after my life. God knew that all Elijah needed was twelve or fourteen 45 hours of good.

Regardless of circum. God's Word never would have said it! Or maybe you are a backslider. If it wasn't true. And the most wonderful thing is that He will even supply the faith. Look up and by faith lay hold of the shield of faith. Do it now. He is the supplier of that faith. They can sense your defeat and all the while you long for a life of victory. You are not influencing your loved ones or the members of your church or those where you work.

Perhaps right now you are defeated and you can see no possible path toward victory in your situation. They live a negative life and everything about them oozes with the contrary environment which they create. Get up out of that chair now! Say aloud.

Snares and Pitfalls In continuing our examination of the pitfalls before us in our Christian walk. What is it? Don't be a negative person! Don't practice a constant attitude of defeat thinking that you might fail. Whenever you are unfortunate enough to walk into their presence. You sit in your rocking chair and you stay there all your life. I'll try it! And I 49 guarantee that you will be surprised at the results of your efforts.

You may be thinking that it's easy for. I am zeroing in on someone right now who has made excuses for not being a Christian because of the fear that he might not be able to live the Christian life. You haven't even begun. Don't talk about those whom you label 'hypocrites. I have fastened my attention on God. Simply because you or someone else has been anointed of God.

We read in the 50 Old Testament. At least they put forth some effort and you have not done a thing! Because they put forth an effort. I have lived that kind of existence because I refused to fix my eyes on people. But do you know why I can make such a statement? Because that is the kind of life I have lived all of my days. Do you know something? I give those hypocrites more credit than I give you.

God made provision for everyone. You point to all the hypocrites that you have encountered and you talk about their failures. He understands the weaknesses of the flesh.

God has made this fact very clear. He didn't forget a single thing. Every ship that sails the seas is provided with an adequate supply of life boats lest there be a wreck or collision. He knows all about us. For the sake of clarity.

In this case He speaks of the priest whom He has anointed. Get your eyes on the provision and not the possibility of sinning. If you are a part of humanity then it is possible for you to sin. He created 51 us. God the Father thought of everything. He has made every provision — even if we sin.

He has made provision for all if we should sin. He has made provision for me if I sin. It doesn't matter how small or how large the ship. And God. There is the possibility that anyone of us can yield.

I belong to an organization where we do not believe in sin! I pointed out that the victorious life is secured by an act of faith and this wonderful daily walk of triumph is maintained by a constant attitude of faith.

In an earlier chapter. There must be that unwavering trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. What if. I have found that in the Body of Christ made up of human beings who are still in a body of flesh. I have this gift or that gift of the Spirit. Suppose then that there is a failure and you or I. I have spoken in tongues. There are no exceptions for the very Son of God was tempted in all points like as we are.

Walk carefully. That is only logical. The more deeply spiritual you are. If the enemy is able to lure that borderline Christian into yielding to temptation.

If you are 53 Spirit-filled. Guard well that which you have. Sometimes I think the folk to whom much has been entrusted are those that the enemy of our soul besieges most tirelessly. If the enemy can trip a spiritual giant and halt his effectiveness for God. Walk softly.

That person who has little or no influence for Christ. It cannot compare to his. We must not be boastful but guard that faith well for the victorious life is secured by an act of faith. And remember. What happens when 54 there is a failure and you do fall into sin? What then? I can tell you right now. There are those of you who read these words and say.

We must walk softly. If he can persuade you that you have never been called of God to your particular task. Doubts are not of God. If he can convince you that you have never been filled with the Spirit.

Let's face facts. He will try to put doubts in your mind. Satan will immediately follow up his victory by trying to persuade you that there is no such thing as the victorious life.

What will your family think? What will the folk in the church think? What will your friends think? Oppression is never of God. Defeat and depression are never of God.

Anything negative is not of God! Think of all those souls that will never hear of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If he can get you off the track. Satan comes and lays on you his 'guilt trip' and says. Your testimony is of no effect. You are absolutely ruined.

You may be a missionary having done a tremendous job for God on the mission field. You hang your head. But something has happened to you out there. Victory was taught by Christ and it is revealed again and again in Paul's epistles and those of John.

Until seventy times seven" Matthew Jesus Himself gave the answer when Peter asked how many times he should forgive his brother if he sin against him. Jesus saith unto him. Or maybe a second time? At the most. But you say. Will He then withhold it forever because of one more fall?

The Bible is full of victorious teaching. I say not unto thee. Right now. What does the scripture say? Remember that God gave us the victorious life after many. Do not listen to Satan or to those who may accuse you. Until seven times: It is the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise God! We are to keep on forgiving again and again as long as that one comes and confesses it and asks forgiveness.

You cannot find in the Word of God where God's forgiveness is limited. His mercy and grace. Now we have conclusively shown that there is no striving.

The very second that you are conscious of sin. The minute sin is confessed. If we fall into any sin. He will not withhold His forgiveness from you!

Do it immediately. If the Master restricted His forgiveness and if He promised to forgive us only once — or to forgive us not more than five.

I once read the account of a very marvelous Christian gentleman who told of an occasion when he lived with four de-. Do not make the mistake to assume infallibility. There is a real danger of this in both your life and mine. Have you ever met folk who are so spiritual that they are dead sure they can never make a mistake?

Of course you have! They are so sure of the indwelling presence of Christ. I am very well aware that there is great joy in unbroken communion with our Lord and often a glorious consciousness of the indwelling Christ's power and presence. What in the world do you mean by that? Or you may consider such counsel as ridiculous. I wouldn't think of assuming that I am infallible! But wait a minute. There will also be those who will say.

You may ask. But it is not our power. Among them was one who was deeply taught from the scriptures.

There is only One who is infallible and that is Jesus Christ. He was confident that he had to be right at all times because he spent so much time in prayer with the Father. He took for granted that he was a little more spiritual than the others. He was also of the opinion that any proposals which conflicted with his ideas must certainly be wrong. Do not misunderstand me. And it is true that sometimes he was right.

All were consecrated Christians and all were far more experienced in holy living than himself. We need to remember that no matter how spiritual any of us might be. He consistently spent long hours alone in prayer. We need to recognize that we are all fallible. Perhaps you know someone who is a little hard of hearing and when that one answers the telephone.

I do not mean to infer. Remember the Thirteenth Chapter of Numbers regarding the twelve leaders that Moses sent into Kadesh-barnea to spy out the Promised Land. They were the majority. If the majority is always right then the ten spies would have been right. I have learned through the years that all of us are sometimes a little 'deaf spiritually.

There must be 61 a perfect doing of God's Will before there is a perfect knowing of His doctrine. That particular man always assumed that he was absolutely guided by God in all his proposals. So it is also true that we are a little deaf spiritually at times. Only two brought back a favorable report while ten men said.

But that is not always the case nor is it true. But remember. We cannot ignore this world although we are cautioned not to become part of it. Jesus Himself said exactly that when in His prayer He said: But again I remind you and I say to myself as well: James and John had when they saw Jesus transfigured before their very eyes. All of us like messages regarding the Holy Spirit who is our Helper and our Strengthener.

Any one of us can be wrong regardless of how spiritual we may be. Perhaps these situations are not among those often discussed for I am quite conscious that most folk like to hear about the wonderful mountain-top experiences which are indeed glorious.

I pray not that thou.. But I knew in that moment it would delight the heart of Satan if he could persuade this man.. And if you are tempted to cheat. I don't care what it is. A father had a question concerning his little boy and he asked me. There are some folk who feel that way. I replied to his query: We are living not only a spiritual life. We are! We are in the world and we cannot close our eyes and ignore it. The father was a Christian. We are not to become a part OF the world.

Stop to think of something I do not want to be around people who cannot smile. The Bible also tells us to ''rejoice evermore" I Thessalonians 5: Just to be in the presence of someone like that brings down a spirit of depression. That's true! There is going to be laughter there.

I believe that it is very inconsistent that a Christian should go around with a long face or displaying a depressed attitude. We can still smile in spite of our circumstances. I firmly believe that God's children should be the happiest people in the whole world.

This is a wonderful world that God has given to us and this thing of living the Christian life is a wonderful life. I do not see how these people who always seem to wear a long face are going to enjoy heaven. I challenge you. Take Him at His word! Our Provider I hope and pray with all of my heart that you have accepted the challenge I made at the close of the last chapter: Not a contract for five or ten years. I am a child of God now.

It is God's guarantee of a. This very moment! I am still here on earth in bodily form. I have claimed that promise for years and years. I am in the flesh in the world.

I do not have to wait until I get home to heaven to be a child of God or to be happy and to rejoice. The joy of the Lord is my strength NOW at this very moment. You need not wait another moment. A daily rate. I can point you to One who can give you better security than even the government.

There is just one God and either you believe His Word or you don't. That's not real security. You won't 'go under' in defeat! Your Heavenly Father knows all about your problems and needs and 67 He has promised a daily rate for the rest of your life.

The Bible here states that a daily rate will be given you of the King. If you are worrying about your finances. Do you realize that the United States Government can go bankrupt? Who ever thought that the Pennsylvania Railroad would file bankruptcy? Who is the King? Why our Heavenly Father! Don't practice a constant attitude of defeat thinking that you might fail, so you won't even try.

Or, you won't ask because you might be refused; you won't make a request lest you be embarrassed by having someone say, No. Therefore, you remain passive and as the old saying goes. You sit in your rocking chair and you stay there all your life. Finally, when your last day comes, you find that you have never tried to do one thing simply because you were afraid of defeat, afraid of refusal.

Get up out of that chair now! Say aloud, I'll try it! And I 49 guarantee that you will be surprised at the results of your efforts. You may be thinking that it's easy for me to say that. But do you know why I can make such a statement?

Because that is the kind of life I have lived all of my days. I have lived that kind of existence because I refused to fix my eyes on people. Instead, I have fastened my attention on God, and in Him there are no limitations and in His promises there is no defeat. I am zeroing in on someone right now who has made excuses for not being a Christian because of the fear that he might not be able to live the Christian life. You point to all the hypocrites that you have encountered and you talk about their failures.

Do you know something? I give those hypocrites more credit than I give you. Because they put forth an effort. You haven't even begun. Don't talk about those whom you label 'hypocrites. At least they put forth some effort and you have not done a thing! Remember : as long as you and I are in the flesh, there is always the possibility of temptation and there will always be the possiblity of sinning. Simply because you or someone else has been anointed of God and called of Him, does not mean that there will never be temptation or the opportunity to sin.

God has made this fact very clear. In this case He speaks of the priest whom He has anointed ,. If you are a part of humanity then it is possible for you to sin.

But, the most thrilling fact is that the Lord has made provision IF you sin. He has made provision for me if I sin. He has made provision for all if we should sin. Therefore, that person who says that he cannot be a Christian because maybe he won't be able to 'hold out,' is hiding behind a very feeble excuse. Get your eyes on the provision and not the possibility of sinning. God the Father thought of everything.

He didn't forget a single thing. He understands the weaknesses of the flesh. He created 51 us. He knows all about us, better than we know ourselves. Thus, He has made every provision even if we sin.

For the sake of clarity, let me make an analogy. Every ship that sails the seas is provided with an adequate supply of life boats lest there be a wreck or collision. It doesn't matter how small or how large the ship, it is always provided with lifeboats because there is the possibility of a storm or a collision and ultimate shipwreck. Of course, this does not imply that it is the Captain's inten- tion to wreck his ship ; but provision is made because there is always the possibility of a disaster.

And God, who is a wise and never-failing Heavenly Father, has made full provision for His children lest we sin! In an earlier chapter, I pointed out that the victorious life is secured by an act of faith and this wonderful daily walk of triumph is maintained by a constant attitude of faith.

There must be that unwavering trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Suppose then that there is a failure and you or I, in a moment of temptation, should yield to that temptation? What if, in that instant of crisis, we should 52 give in to satanic pressures? There is the possibility that anyone of us can yield ; but there may be those who will counter this statement by attesting, "I have been filled with the Holy Spirit.

I have spoken in tongues. I have this gift or that gift of the Spirit. I belong to an organization where we do not believe in sin! There are no exceptions for the very Son of God was tempted in all points like as we are, yet He remained without sin Hebrews Yes, you may be filled with the Holy Spirit, you may have received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, you may have spoken in tongues and God may have entrusted to you several gifts of the Spirit.

Sometimes I think the folk to whom much has been entrusted are those that the enemy of our soul besieges most tirelessly. Walk carefully.

Walk softly. Guard well that which you have. If you are 53 Spirit-filled, if God has bestowed on you heavenly gifts, if you have had great spiritual experiences, guard these things carefully for you are the very person that the enemy will attack.

The more deeply spiritual you are, the greater will be the attacks of Satan upon you because you have greater influence than that one who is a weak Christian. That is only logical. If the enemy can trip a spiritual giant and halt his effectiveness for God, that is exactly his plan. That person who has little or no influence for Christ, even though he is born again and has had that spiritual experience with the Savior, will not encounter the same measure of temptation as the one living close to Jesus.

If the enemy is able to lure that borderline Christian into yielding to temptation, his victory will be small. It cannot compare to his delight in causing to falter that somebody whose spiritual influence is great. Therefore, we must be careful.

We must walk softly. We must not be boastful but guard that faith well for the victorious life is secured by an act of faith ; and it is maintained only by a constant attitude of faith. Let's face facts. What happens when 54 there is a failure and you do fall into sin? What then? I can tell you right now, Satan will immediately follow up his victory by trying to persuade you that there is no such thing as the victorious life ; or if there is, that you never had the blessing of God in the first place.

Or, he may cause you to believe that God's blessing is gone forever and you have lost it eternally. There are those of you who read these words and say, ''Kathryn Kuhlman, how do you know that much about me? If he can convince you that you have never been filled with the Spirit, he has won a double victory. If he can persuade you that you have never been called of God to your particular task, he has won a tremendous victory.

He will try to put doubts in your mind. And remember, doubts are not of the Holy Spirit. Doubts are not of God, doubts come from the devil, the enemy of your soul.

Defeat and depression are never of God. Oppression is never of God. Anything negative is not of God! So, immediately after you have yielded to temptation, Satan comes and lays on you his 'guilt trip' and says, ''Now you are ruined.

You are absolutely ruined.

Your testimony is of no effect. What will your family think? What will the folk in the church think? What will your friends think? You hang your head, your feet drag and you are the most miserable person in the world. You may be a missionary having done a tremendous job for God on the mission field. But something has happened to you out there, or something has happened to a member of your family and the enemy of your soul is taking advantage and is doing a good job of convincing you that you have ruined everything, that you have lost your influence.

If he can get you off the track, off the mission field and get you back home again in a little rented house and can get you to live the rest of your life in defeat and discouragement, he has won a mighty big victory. Think of all those souls that will never hear of the Lord Jesus Christ 56 if you yield to defeat, if Satan is able to thwart your labors for the Master!

Right now, get up and start doing something about it! But you say, ''What can I do? Do not listen to Satan or to those who may accuse you. The Bible is full of victorious teaching. Victory was taught by Christ and it is revealed again and again in Paul's epistles and those of John. Remember that God gave us the victorious life after many, many falls failures.

Will He then withhold it forever because of one more fall? Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times : but.

Until seventy times seven" Matthew , Jesus Himself gave the answer when Peter asked how many times he should forgive his brother if he sin against him. Or maybe a second time? At the most, Lord, seven times stretching his power for forgiveness? What does the scripture say?

If the Master restricted His forgiveness and if He promised to forgive us only once or to forgive us not more than five, six or seven times at the most all of us would be sunk. You cannot find in the Word of God where God's forgiveness is limited.

He will not withhold His forgiveness from you! But, if Satan can whisper to you and convince you that you cannot be forgiven, he will do it. Then, he has won a great victory. Now we have conclusively shown that there is no striving, no struggling on our part to receive forgiveness or maintain the victorious life. It is the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. His mercy and grace. Therefore, it must be obvious that our efforts and struggling will never reinstate us should we sin.

If we fall into any sin, our Savior wishes us to turn to Him at once in faith for forgiveness. Do it immediately. The very second that you are conscious of sin, ask God's forgiveness and instantly He will put away your sin! The minute sin is confessed, that moment your sin is put away. Praise God! Do not make the mistake to assume infallibility. You may ask, What in the world do you mean by that? Or you may consider such counsel as ridiculous.

There will also be those who will say, I wouldn't think of assuming that I am infallible! But wait a minute. There is a real danger of this in both your life and mine. I am very well aware that there is great joy in unbroken communion with our Lord and often a glorious consciousness of the indwelling Christ's power and presence.

But it is not our power, it is His ; and I want you to see that there is a danger of our supposing that we always know God's will in any matter. Therefore, we may think that we are always right. Have you ever met folk who are so spiritual that they are dead sure they can never make a mistake? Of course you have! They are so sure of the indwelling presence of Christ, they are so 59 sure of their knowledge of the Word of God, they are so sure of their relationship with Him, they are so sure that they are infallible in making any decision that it becomes a danger.

I once read the account of a very marvelous Christian gentleman who told of an occasion when he lived with four de- voted men of God. All were consecrated Christians and all were far more experienced in holy living than himself. Among them was one who was deeply taught from the scriptures. He consistently spent long hours alone in prayer ; and he, therefore, assumed that in all things and situations he had the mind of Christ.

He was also of the opinion that any proposals which conflicted with his ideas must certainly be wrong. He was confident that he had to be right at all times because he spent so much time in prayer with the Father.

He took for granted that he was a little more spiritual than the others. And it is true that sometimes he was right, but sometimes he was wrong! We need to remember that no matter how spiritual any of us might be, there are times when we can be wrong for we are still human and nobody is right all the time. Do not misunderstand me. Remember, we all can be wrong because, as human beings, we are fallible. There is only One who is infallible and that is Jesus Christ.

But that is not always the case nor is it true. I have learned through the years that all of us are sometimes a little 'deaf spiritually, and we do not always clearly hear God's message, just as the physically deaf person does not always hear perfectly over the telephone. Perhaps you know someone who is a little hard of hearing and when that one answers the telephone, he is liable to make a mistake because of his hearing impairment. So it is also true that we are a little deaf spiritually at times.

There must be 61 a perfect doing of God's Will before there is a perfect knowing of His doctrine. We need to recognize that we are all fallible, that we may be mistaken sometimes. I do not mean to infer, however, that the majority vote is always right even though the majority generally rules.

Remember the Thirteenth Chapter of Numbers regarding the twelve leaders that Moses sent into Kadesh-barnea to spy out the Promised Land. Only two brought back a favorable report while ten men said, ''We are not able to go up against the people for they are stronger than we" Verse If the majority is always right then the ten spies would have been right. They were the majority. No, only two were confident of success and said, ''Let us go up at once, and pos- sess it; for we are well able to overcome it" Verse Unfortunately, the people sided with the ten, and forty years of wandering, of misery and rebellion ensued because they did not heed the advice of the two who had the mind of God and were right.

But again I remind you and I say to myself as well : do not assume infallibility. Any one of us can be wrong regardless of how spiritual we may be. Perhaps these situations are not among those often discussed for I am quite conscious that most folk like to hear about the wonderful mountain-top experiences which are indeed glorious.

All of us like messages regarding the Holy Spirit who is our Helper and our Strengthener. But remember, even after a wonderful mountain-top experience such as Peter, James and John had when they saw Jesus transfigured before their very eyes, and Moses and Elijah stood before them.

We cannot ignore this world although we are cautioned not to become part of it; but we are still in the world, our existence is in the world. Jesus Himself said exactly that when in His prayer He said: "Father I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil one " John We are not to become a part OF the world, but that does not mean that we are not IN the 63 world.

We are! We are in the world and we cannot close our eyes and ignore it. A father had a question concerning his little boy and he asked me, ''Do you think it is wrong if I play marbles with my four-year-old son?

The father was a Christian, a saint of God and perhaps someone pointed a critical finger at him for playing a game of marbles with his child. But I knew in that moment it would delight the heart of Satan if he could persuade this man, and other holy people, that all pleasure is sinful.

There are some folk who feel that way. I replied to his query : ''Dear man of God : by all means play marbles with your little boy And if you are tempted to cheat, only then that seemingly harmless game becomes sin to you.

I don't care what it is, you can make sin of anything. We are living not only a spiritual life, but a bodily life and whether we like it or not, a very large part of our time and interest is taken up with things that concern the body. I firmly believe that God's children should be the happiest people in the whole world.

The Greatest Power in the World

I believe that it is very inconsistent that a Christian should go around with a long face or displaying a depressed attitude. Just to be in the presence of someone like that brings down a spirit of depression. I do not want to be around people who cannot smile, who do not have the joy of the Lord. This is a wonderful world that God has given to us and this thing of living the Christian life is a wonderful life.

We can still smile in spite of our circumstances. I do not see how these people who always seem to wear a long face are going to enjoy heaven. That's true! There is going to be laughter there, it's eternal joy in heaven.

Stop to think of something 65 else : we do not have to wait until after death has come to become the sons of God. No, ''Beloved, now are we the sons of God" I John This very moment! I am still here on earth in bodily form. I am in the flesh in the world; yet, I am a child of God now. I do not have to wait until I get home to heaven to be a child of God or to be happy and to rejoice.

The joy of the Lord is my strength NOW at this very moment. I challenge you, therefore, to start enjoying your inheritance in Christ Jesus now. You need not wait another moment.
