Happiness... {J.C. Ryle}



The plain truth is that without Christ there is no happiness in the world.

He alone can give the Comforter who abides forever.
He is the sun; without Him people never feel warm.
He is the light; without Him people are always in the dark.
He is the bread; without Him people are always starving.
He is the living water; without Him people are always thirsty.
Give them what you like, place them where you please,
surround them with all the comforts you can imagine,
it makes no difference.

Separate from Christ, the Prince of Peace, a person cannot be happy.

~ J.C. Ryle
