Topic: You can be HAPPY without Sin
Scripture: Jesus replied, The Israelites had not celebrated like this since the days of Joshua son of Nun” (Nehemiah 8:17 NLT).
Message: Sometimes people think if they do what the Bible says, they’ll be miserable.They’ll say, “The sinners have all the fun.They get to do all the cool stuff.They do whatever they want to.We have been deceived to think that Righteousness is wretchedness.We think that doing His will will rob us of our joy.
But do the sinners really have fun? Yes,There is fun in sin but it’s temporal,and the penalties of sin are brutal.It comes with temporal happiness but have eternal consequences.Why sacrifice your eternal JOY for temporal happiness?
As the people of Israel heard God speak to them through Ezra, they realized they had missed something the Scriptures had told them to do. So they obeyed the Word of God.The result of their obedience was great *JOY*: “So everyone who had returned from captivity lived in these shelters during the festival, and they were all filled with great joy! The Israelites had not celebrated like this since the days of Joshua son of Nun” (Nehemiah 8:17 NLT).
You can have a joyful life without sin.You can have a happy life without sex outside of marriage, without drugs or alcohol.Any happiness outside God is self affliction.The worship of God is never Boring if you Folow as HE leads.There is Joy in walking with God.True satisfaction is not in sex nor money but in God.God is enough.
God is not out to ruin your life.He is out to bless your life and fulfill you.Be happy.Love Him and walk with Him.He is all you Need!
