Thanks, Jack. I so much appreciate the wisdom you summarize for us. Tom

Thank you so much Mr. Bowers for your kind words. You are too kind. May God be glorified in all things for He deserves all credit sir.

Thanks Jack, another home run. I had never really given much thought to Joy and Happiness, and like most had assumed they were one and the same. I appreciate your obedience to the Spirit, illuminating so many different subjects. I am certain that many people are touched by them as much as I am. We all have the same purpose in Christ, with many different gifts. You Sir make good use of the gifts He has given you.

Thank you so much Mr. Jansen. You are more than too kind. I can not boast however for all that I have received is from God and so to Him goes the glory.

Great article on a topic that is currently greatly misunderstood. Too many people think that a relationsip with God means that immediately all their problems simply vanish into thin air. However, when we consider believers down through history, we see many examples of God being with believers who are suffering, but not many times when there is no suffering. Great job helping us understand this, Jack.
Yours in Christ,
Robert

Hi Jack,

Thank you for this article! You are the second pastor who I have heard talk about peace and joy compared to happiness. I would take the peace and joy given by God anyday over happenings. So insightful and this is truly a good message for believers to hear.

Thanks Chevy for your encouragement. To believe that we are promised happiness in this life does not work in 3rd world countries where people regularly die for their faith, live in poverty, and can hardly even get a Bible. This is the health, wealth, and prosperity gospel with Paul said is another gospel and not that of Christ. To promise that and see someone become a Christian and not have happiness come makes many fall away.

Thank you for this encouraging and uplifting message. It seems today in our society that more people are focused on having an “easy” life, instead of a “fulfilling” life.
And what can be more fulfilling than living each day in Christ.

God Bless

Is there a verse in the bible in any version that says that “happiness is fleeting”?

Thank you and God Bless,

AFM

Hello Antonio. If there is a Bible verse that says happiness is fleeting, I could not find it. The Bible never promises happiness because it is based upon “happenings” and this is not permanent but the joy of the Lord is our strength and will remain. There is a difference between happiness and joy and I would rather sacrifice temporary happiness for the Lord’s permanent joy. Make sense sir? Thank you for your comment.

Empirically speaking God is on the minds of billions of people. With or without the 2,300 denominations of Christianity or the bible six or more translations or as still another astronomical solar messiah; “Jesus Christ is the alpha omega of 17 billion years of an ever expanding massively diverse universe with one blink of an eye representing all of human mankind’s existence.
