Happy Life / Happier Life
Posted Apr 01, 2018
Is happiness possible? The biblical answer is a resounding “Yes!” And Jesus showed us how to get there. The more we practice Jesus’ teachings, the more we will experience happiness.
The Sermon on the Mount is the perfect picture of life in the kingdom of God. It shows us what life can be like if we live according to the will of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Happiness is not merely the result of good fortune; it does not come because of circumstances; it is not something that just happens to us. Happiness grows when we live according to God’s plan. Only then will our lives be characterized by integrity – the quality that is manifested when our inner selves and our outer selves are in sync with each other. Jesus calls us up to wholeness – to the inner life and outer life of a truly integrated person.
Our spring sermon series focuses on the pathway to a happier life that Jesus offers us in the Sermon on the Mount.
