In What Way Shall We Attain This Settled Happiness of the Soul?

In what way shall we attain to this settled happiness of soul?  How shall we learn to enjoy God?  How shall we obtain such an all-sufficient soul-satisfying portion in him as shall enable us to let go the things this world as vain and worthless in comparison?  I answer, this happiness is to be obtained through the study of Holy Scriptures.  God has therein revealed Himself unto us in the face of Jesus Christ.
