Happiness as a Way of Being

Pursuit of Happiness:  A Way of Being, June 25, 2017

We conclude the June sermon series with a message from Pastor Gannon that happiness is a way of being. The more we focus on our own happiness, the more it can frustrate us.  But when we back off from pursuing happiness and focus on someone or something else, happiness tends to result. Jesus teaches this principle in Luke 9:23-24. In Scripture, happiness isn’t primarily a feeling or a temporary state of cheerfulness. Happiness is a condition, a state of living, a way of being in the world that honors God and blesses people. It consists of finding wholeness, peace, and contentment, as we find our place in this world. Happiness is living the Zoë life. (John 10:10)
