At the Center

If you seek the Lord Jesus Christ and find him
there is no need to worry
about your happiness and your joy.
He is our joy and our happiness,
even as He is our peace.
He is life, He is everything.
So avoid the incitements
and the temptations of Satan
to give feelings
this great prominence at the centre.
Put at the centre
the only One who has a right to be there,
the Lord of Glory,
Who so loved you
that He went to the Cross
and bore the punishment
and the shame of your sins
and died for you.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Spiritual Depression, 117-118
