Joy Unspeakable?

I wanted to post this the other day, but it slipped my mind until just a few moments ago. I came to realization while I was at work on Friday (I think it was) that so very many people seem simply unhappy. Why is that? Even people who I know to be Christian walk through the aisles at work looking nothing like they are living in the joy unspeakable of Jesus Christ.

I simply cannot understand this. In John Piper’s book Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ, he pointed out that Jesus Christ is the happiest being in existence. He has infinite joy, and that joy is shared with all of those who believe in Him.

You wouldn’t know it by the faces of the public. Again I ask… Why is that?
