Think God doesn't want you to be happy?
While Christians shouldn't deny or ignore suffering, we should be so energized by contagious joy and radiate such inner happiness, peace, and contentment that others are attracted to what we have in Christ. Yet Christians are often perceived as angry, judgmental, and duty given.
Why aren't we happier?
Unfortunately, many believers are taught that God wants us to be holy but not happy and that joy and happiness are fundamentally different. We've even been left with the impression that God himself isn't happy. Yet nothing could be further from the truth!
God is happy, and he wants us to be happy too. Why else would Scripture call him "the happy God"? Why else would he call the gospel the "good news of great joy" and go to extraordinary lengths to ensure our eternal happiness?
We know we'll experience unimaginable happiness in Heaven and on the New Earth, but that doesn't mean we can't also experience great happiness here and now.
Join bestselling author and noted theologian Randy Alcorn as he dispels the modern Christian misconceptions about happiness and provides indisputable biblical proof that God not only wants us to be happy but commands and empowers us to be happy in him!
The day has not yet come when God will wipe away every tear from his children's eyes, but rest assured, that day will come. Until then, this definitive work can help change the way you think about joy and happiness.
