Some would say that cultural engagement is not a proper goal for Christians. That would be a mistake.
Christians don’t lead safe lives. They lead joyfully purposeful ones, because Jesus is better.
We need not only forgiveness from past sin, but also renewed joy that preserve us from future sin.
If joy is a fruit of the spirit, why would God want us to feel bad for doing something good?
Find yourself in Christ alone, and you will find joy in any job circumstance.
As a Christian single on Valentine’s Day, you couldn’t be more loved.
As you start another year of ministry, pursue joy and humility amid the wondrous weight of the task.
It is goodness that we are not equipped to handle, sorrow and suffering become our friends.
We have all heard that the word “blessed” means “happy.” True enough. But the kind of happiness that “blessed” conveys is something that transcends the typical American definitions of happiness. It communicates a satisfaction and contentment that is firmly settled in the soul. It isn’t touched by the trivial. It communicates a sense of joy that more often than not is expressed by tears rather than laughter. It isn’t inspired by jokes.
