Spiritual Happiness & Depression

“Believing as I do that the greatest need of the hour is a revived and joyful Church the subject dealt with in these sermons [on Spiritual Depression] is to me of the greatest possible importance. Unhappy Christians are, to say the least, a poor recommendation for the Christian Faith; and there can be little doubt but that the exuberant joy of the early Christians was one of the most potent factors in the spread of Christianity.”

“It is very sad to contemplate the fact that there are Christian people who live the greater part of their lives in this world in such a condition [spiritually depressed]. It does not mean they are not Christians, but it does mean that they are missing a great deal…”

– Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression

Jesus, help your people, including me, be the most happy people on the planet, because of you and your gospel!
