Happiness is temporal. Discover infinite joy.
The Christian faith promises joy—pure joy. Not what people call happiness, but joy. Not health or wealth, but joy. Not an easy ride and fun, but joy. We are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy. In the familiar down-to-earth and thoroughly biblical style for which he is so loved, R. T. Kendall unpacks the joy that is a gift of God for all Christians.
With wisdom and compassion, Kendall explains:
The kind of joy that motivated Jesus
The differences between trials and temptations
Six principles of God's discipline
Two kinds of rejoicing
Four levels of joy
What to do if joy is lacking
Joy in the face of extreme trial, the joy which comes in time, the joy of God's esteem, and rejoicing in the Lord are just some of the themes explored in this wonderful book of encouragement and inspiration.
