HOLINESS AND HAPPINESS


Quote taken from an article "9 Points for Preaching on the Problem of Evil" by Norman L. Geisler, a distinguished professor of apologetics at Veritas Evangelical Seminary in Murrieta, California:


"The stark truth is that God is more interested in our holiness than in our happiness. There is no verse in the Bible that says, "Be happy, as I am happy." There are verses that declare, "Be holy, as I am holy" (Lev. 11:44-45; 19:2). Yes, God is more interested in our character than our comfort, and He has been known to sacrifice the latter in order to achieve the former."
