Our Highest Happiness

Let me call it to your attention that the happiness of all moral creatures lies in the giving of obedience to God, the Creator. The psalmist cries out in Psalm 103:20: “Bless the Lord, ye his angels; that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.” The angels in heaven find their complete freedom and highest happiness in obeying the commandments of God. They do not find it a tyranny; they find it a delight! Here is something that we should know and realize: heaven is a place of surrender to the whole will of God, and it is heaven because it is such a place. I thank God that heaven is the world of God’s obedient children. Whatever else we may say of its pearly gates, golden streets, and jasper walls, heaven is heaven because children of the Most High God find they are in their normal sphere as obedient moral beings.

Verse

If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. John 13:17

Thought

The happiness of all moral creatures lies in the giving of obedience to God, the Creator.

Prayer

Lord, I do look forward to heaven, and I wish to replicate a little of what heaven will be like here and now. I will obey You.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
