The Latest Sermon by Pastor Wayne Dudley - "Daniel 8". Click Here
Romans 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
Happiness comes from outside circumstances. Joy comes from within. It's disingenuous to say to people who are in sorrow, "smile and be happy."
It's better to come alongside and mourn with them than to try to force the square peg of happiness into a round hole of sorrow.
A fallen creation besets us with a life of tragedy, sorrow, heartache, and pain. Yet in every difficulty, you can find joy. Happiness is an outside job. Joy is an inside Job.
There is someone in your life that longs for The Lord's Joy. Who might that be? Find some time this week to bring the joy of the Lord to them.
