Sermon Notes

For the vast majority of Americans today, personal happiness is the chief and highest goal. “What makes me happy?” is the question that defines morality, purpose, and even truth. Regrettably, this kind of thinking is pervasive both inside and outside of the church. One might assume in such a cultural climate that the Bible teaches something akin to God’s assistance for every Christian in achieving the American Dream. However, the message of Christianity is actually in stark contrast to such an idea. Temporal happiness is the antithesis of God’s promise for believers. Instead, all who glory in God alone may possess Joy – real and lasting Joy.
