The Joy of Being God
‘Happiness’ and ‘God’ don’t go together in people’s minds. That’s really tragic, because the Bible describes him as “the happy God” who invites people to “Come and share my happiness.” This message argues that, because many Christians have forgotten this, the unbelieving world is repulsed from the Church instead of being attracted to its overflowing happiness. It’s time for us to rediscover God’s joyfulness and his desire to share his joy with us today.
God loves being God. He enjoys it so much that he wants us to share in his enjoyment. He says that our own happiness depends on grasping how happy he is. That’s what the Bible means when it tells us that “The joy of the Lord is our strength” (Nehemiah 8:12)
