How To Have A Merry Heart
Ted E. Bowling
Given 07-Dec-02; Sermon #587s; 14 minutes
Ted Bowling, observing that despite all the glitz or tinsel, this time of year (Christmas season) brings about a great deal of stress and depression. Knowing God and knowing the will of God brings about contentment and a positive attitude. Failing to know God's will or yielding to sin will bring about separation from God and hopelessness. David's adultery led to separation from God. and a great deal of anguish. Psalm 51 chronicles David's desire to re-connect with God, asking God to clean him up from the inside out. We also want our hearts cleaned from the inside out having this deep-seated contentment, the joy of God's Holy Spirit, purifying us, leading us from depression to contentment.
