We shall always have mere happiness the more we labor for Christ.
Have you not had better visions of Jesus, when you have been racked with pain, than when you have been elevated by prosperity? When the barn has been full, the oil vat has been bursting, and the wine has been running over, it is often then that the sanctuary of God has been forsaken and the cabinet of God’s loving-kindness is nearly disregarded. But when the fig-tree does not blossom, and when there are no herds in the stalls, then it is that God often comes nearest to his children, and most reveals himself to them.
…he must be happy who lives near to God.
…there will three effects of nearness to Jesus, all beginning with the letter h—humility, happiness, and holiness. May God give them to us!
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
