“Creation is awesome. God designed it to be awesome. And God designed you to take in creation’s awesome display. You are meant to be inspired and to celebrate the awesome things that come from the Creator’s hand.”

“The gospel offers an exchange of misery-generating sin for happiness-giving righteousness provided by Jesus. That’s an incredible bargain—and startlingly good news!”

“When we lose ourselves in God’s purposes, Jesus says we’ll find ourselves—and also happiness.”

“Countless people in worse situations are happier than those in better situations. This demonstrates that happiness is dependent not on circumstances but on perspective, which is determined by our focus.”

“Christians see the world seeking happiness instead of holiness, so we assume we should not seek happiness at all. But this false contrast between holiness and happiness is both unbiblical and impractical. The devil’s lie is that embracing holiness brings unhappiness. But God says duty and delight are connected.”

“The happiest people in the world are those who have a deep, gratitude-drenched relationship with Christ.”

“Happiness is impossible without repentance, forgiveness, and a right relationship with Christ.”
