Happiness and Holiness

No man should desire to be happy who is not at the same time holy. He should spend his efforts in seeking to know and do the will of God, leaving to Christ the matter of how happy he should be.

[A.W. Tozer]

Job 5:17 ... Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

Deuteronomy 29:8 ... The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.

Psalm 14:15 ... Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.

1 Peter 1:16 ... Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.❤
