Hollow Humor

It is simply a delusion to think that because you see people laughing and indulging in noisy excitement, they must be happy! A loud laugh or an empty joke is often one of the coverings that Satan uses to hide an aching heart.

A man once went to consult a doctor about his health. He complained that he suffered from such overwhelming depression that his life was unbearable.

The doctor examined him and, after a little while, remarked that he only needed some amusement to divert his thoughts from himself. “Try a lively novel — that would be about the best medicine you could take.”

The man shook his head, as if doubtful of the prescription, and then the doctor said again, “Well, I’ll tell you what to do to cheer yourself up. Go to the theater and see what that will do for you.” Still a turn of the head showed the patient had no confidence in the proposal.

“Well,” said the doctor, “I can only think of one other thing or person that would help you, and if that doesn’t do it, I’m unable to help you. Go and see that great clown that has just arrived and is drawing big crowds with his act. If you suffer from depression after hearing and watching him, I’ll be surprised.”

“Ah!” said the poor man, deeply distressed. “I’m that clown.”

There are two voices in your ear today, one shouting promises of pleasure and amusement and trying to drown the other, “a still small voice,” that repeats tenderly, “Come unto ME, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

That rest has been purchased for you at a high price. The Lord Jesus left His throne above and came down here to buy it for you, and He now offers it freely to you.

“He is our peace” (Ephesians 2:14).

“Joy unspeakable” (1 Peter 1:8).

Have you heard the wonderful news that “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, CHRIST DIED FOR US” (Romans 5:8)?

If you have, then here is God’s way to obtain eternal life. Jesus says:

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that

• HEARETH My word, and

• BELIEVETH on Him that sent Me,

• HATH everlasting life, and

• SHALL NOT COME INTO CONDEMNATION; but

• IS PASSED from death unto life” (John 5:24).

“HEAR, and YOUR SOUL shall live” (Isaiah 55:3).

“If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).
