05-08-2016 The Fight for Right Delight
May 9th, 2016 by The Salt Mine Church
For Mother’s Day, Eric tackles an issue near and dear to a mother’s heart–the happiness of her children. Many Christians believe “God is more interested in our obedience than our happiness.” To deconstruct this myth and see what Scripture actually says, he looks at several related questions. Are happiness and joy different emotions? Where does the Bible root our joy? Are joy and obedience actually opposing qualities? Is God primarily concerned with obedience over joy? Some answers may surprise you.
