The Advent of Joy

Watch the full teaching here

December 16, 2018  //  This is part three of a five-part teaching series on Advent. There is a big difference between happiness and joy. We have the legal right to pursue happiness, which is a blessing, but what about pursing joy? Joy is not a temporary emotion. It is a deep transformation that comes from entering into the life of Christ and being part of His Body. It is a state of being because we know that we are loved. Happiness comes and goes, depending upon situation or our mood, but joy never goes away. It even stops the impact of negative people in our lives as well as our own negative thoughts. Luke 2:8-21
