The first article of the Westminster Confession of Faith states that the goal of life is: “Glorify God, and always delight in Him.” To glorify God and always delight in Him is the true meaning of our Christian life. Psalm 111 provides How to live a happy lifestyle forever. Whether in the epidemic or after the epidemic, we have learned:

Thank Him (v.4-6): Lord! You have given us food and we have food and clothing! You have given the earth and we can live on it! If we have food and clothing, we shall be content.

Serving Him (v.9-10a): Lord! My life was bought and redeemed by you personally with your precious blood! It is only natural to offer your body as a living sacrifice to serve You. Lord!
