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.
R.T. Kendall was minister at Westminster Chapel, London, for exactly twenty-five years until his retirement in February 2002. He is a hugely popular speaker and writer; he is a regular speaker at many conference, including Spring Harvest, and the author of more than thirty books, including Sensitivity of the Spirit, Total Forgiveness, and The Anointing.
