Happiness is one of the best ways to share the good news of Jesus Christ. And we should be having more parties!
Celebration and gladness of heart have characterized the church, including the suffering church, throughout history. Scripturally, the culture of God’s people is one of joy, happiness, gratitude, eating and drinking, singing and dancing, and making music. It’s not the people who know God who have reason to be miserable — it’s those who don’t.
If the world judges us, so be it, but it shouldn’t be because we’re chronically unhappy.
