Why are some Christians joyless or unhappy – when Christ is indeed everything to them?


This is a very good question. As believers in Christ, we know from the Bible that when we repented and believed in the Lord, Christ became our allotted portion with the saints in the light(Col. 1:12), and God gave Christ to us as the fattened calf(Luke 15) for us to enjoy. We were redeemed, we were returned to our rightful possession – God is our inheritance – and we returned to God as our everything. God is our inheritance, and after we were saved, the Spirit of God is in us as the pledge, the guarantee, the proof, and the security of our inheritance(Eph. 1:13-14). The Holy Spirit is today in us, the believers in Christ, as a foretaste, a sample – guaranteeing us the full taste of our enjoyment in God in the future! We are saved – we have God – we have everything we need – God is our inheritance! Still, there is this question which both unbelievers and Christians ask alike,
