Hope For Joy
One of the things everyone seeks most out of life is to just be happy. Unfortunately happiness can be a difficult emotion to maintain consistently with all of the struggles life presents. Jesus sends His disciples out to minister to lost people and they come back full of joy because of the powerful things they saw God do through them. However, Jesus tells them not to find joy in the power, but in their position, as their names were written in heaven. Check out this powerful message about the relationship between happiness, joy, and our identity as people.
