When people of good cheer gather together, it is hard to predict the topic of discussion.
And so, one such gathering provided a somewhat-odd subject of conversation.
“What’s the best feeling?”
How the question initially arose remains fuzzy BUT the question sparked enough interest so that ALL present provided clues to what each considered their own little slice of joy.
A few answers led to a general agreement, with others providing examples from their own lives supporting their choice.
Several answers, while obviously joyful to those who offered them, were greeted with a sort of respectful silence–before quickly moving on.
What are the best feelings?
A few of the more memorable suggestions follow, as well as a few which gathered little support, but–because the gathering was of those of good cheer–there was no booing or hissing from the onlookers.
“Something good to eat–I mean REALLY good to eat–when you’re hungry. I don’t mean when you’re just wanting something to eat, but when you are actually HUNGRY.”
“A hug when you’re feeling down.”
“Something sweet with something salty.”
“Being right when EVERYBODY says you’re wrong. No, actually, being proven right in front of the whole world when everybody said you were wrong. Some even made fun of you.”
“Ice cold water when you’re thirsty.”
“Knowing that you’re going to heaven.”
“A hot cup of black coffee first thing on a cold morning with something sweet to eat with it.”
“Making a thing starting from scratch, and having it turn out GREAT!”
In a somewhat similar vein:
“Building something yourself and watching it get bigger and grow.”
And lastly, a personal favorite (for a couple of reasons):
“When it’s cold and snowing outside and you’re inside where it’s warm and safe, snuggled up reading a book.”
YES, these answers concentrated on (mostly) those sensations of the flesh.
BUT, the question WAS about feelings.
DOES the reader agree with any of the above?
OR has the reader done something else which has provided him with such joy and good feelings that he remembered it long after it was over?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
