We have good days, and, well – some are not so good. And then many days are really happy days.
What was your happiest day ever?
The Happiest Day Ever
Looking back on life, there are many wonderful days. God is good.
Looking at your eternity (with eternity’s values in view) what can be happier than God saying this to you?
In that moment in time when we truly repent and accept Jesus — we go from being a “mere human” (a horribly limiting condition!) — to being a brand new person inside (an eternally blessed condition!), destined to live in God’s Home Heaven forever. Everything changes. THAT is as happy as “happy” can get! You just stepped into eternity!
with our loving God of mercy and grace
– for all eternity.
You are born a mere [man or woman], a created human, living-out your days on God’s earth until He then deigns to call you up front in His Court to His Throne of Judgement, and says to you, “What did you do with my Son, Jesus?” See the Parable of the Landowner: Matthew 21:33-41.

Of course, if we are looking at “the happiest”, then we must consider “the saddest”.
What will be the saddest day in your life?
The Saddest Day
The Bible says we all have an appointed day to die (Hebrews 9:27). But “death” is not the sad part.
God is all that matters. He matters because on That Day, someday, we (every one of us!) will stand before Him, the Ultimate Judge, to give an ultimate accounting. And if what you think is not what God thinks, then… who is out-of-line?
Who has the wrong “think”? Is it God!? Is it God that doesn’t have His thinking straight? Or is it you?
And so THEN, what are you going to do in That Day? Argue and plead with the Almighty?
You really think THAT will work? You are the putty, the mud, in the Sculptor’s hands. Is the mud to question the potter? I stand amazed looking at the arrogant mud-man shaking his puny little mud-fist — at God, the Potter! At God! Ha!
What impudence. What futility, despair, regret.

He will not ask you what you think. He might not ask you anything. Maybe your whole life will flash before you in an instant, and you will stand there confounded, condemned, with all your sin unforgiven – all on you. – Source: Following Someone
You do not want to go to eternity with all your sins condemning you. And you don’t have to, actually. God died on a cross to set you free. Choose Jesus right now.
Excerpt: Freed from a righteous “God Damn”
We are born into condemnation, and nothing takes that off us — except our “accept”, our accepting of Jesus’ salvation. Nobody nowhere no way no how… can free you from the righteous “God Damn” except for Jesus. He’s The Man, the Godman.
“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] [a]only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. – John 3:16
Have you been freed?
The Kingdom of God is very exclusive, very luxurious, very special …Wonderful! Imagine being with our loving God of mercy and grace – for all eternity.
- God wants us all to be saved.
“…under the Law almost everything is cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness [neither release from sin and its guilt, nor cancellation of the merited punishment].
23 Therefore it was necessary for the [earthly] copies of the heavenly things to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves required far better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did not enter into a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but [He entered] into heaven itself, now to appear in the very presence of God on our behalf;
25 nor did He [enter into the heavenly sanctuary to] offer Himself again and again, as the high priest enters the Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. 26 Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer over and over since the foundation of the world;
but now once for all at the consummation of the ages He has appeared and been publicly manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
27 And just as it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once and once for all to bear [as a burden] [e]the sins of many, will appear a second time [when he returns to earth],
not to deal with sin, but to bring salvation to those who are eagerly and confidently waiting for Him.
– Hebrews 9:22-28.
