I once wrote a book called The Happy Christian. Many of my Christian friends and colleagues in the ministry viewed me as suspect when they heard about it. They thought I’d “gone all Joel Osteen,” as one of them put it.
Another narrowed his eyes and asked, “What are you trying to do, David?”
“Make Christians happy!” I answered. You’d have thought I’d denied the resurrection.
“How can I be happy?” is the most fundamental human question. It’s what drives every human being. God allows as to answer it in a Christian way. In fact, he provides the Christian answer in Philippians 3:1.
