Christian Atheist: a person who claims to believe in God but lives as if He doesn’t exist

Is there anything wrong with happy Christians living a happy life?
Is there anything wrong with Christians pursuing happiness through this equation?

World Equation:

Better Possessions + Peaceful Circumstances + Thrilling Experiences + Right Relationships + Perfect Appearances = Happiness

God is not against happiness, or a happy life.  But He is against a happy life that doesn’t work.  

1 John 2:15, 17
Do not love the world or the things in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him… The world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

The world is passing away.  It is temporary. We cannot take what is temporary (the world) to satisfy what is meant for eternity (us).

God promises something better: Everlasting Joy.

Jesus’ Equation: Abide (Love from God) + Bear Fruit (Fruit from God) = Joy


One way is to abide in His words.

Rest - Rest and bring yourself to God
Read - Read God’s word out loud slowly
Relate - Pay attention to anything that relates to you, does anything God says about himself relate to you?
Remember - Remember it throughout the day, and plug into God’s words through out the day

Abide in His words and His words will abide in You
Abide in His love and His love will abide in You
Do you want to receive the Joy from God?
