True Joy

Everyone is seeking after their own happiness. The problem is that many are seeking after it the wrong way. Usually, they seek it by putting themselves first and pursuing their own pleasures. But, this isn’t the path to true joy.

True joy comes when you place Jesus first in your life. “Whoever comes to me I will never cast out” (John 6:37). True joy comes when you serve others. “Whoever would be great among you must be your servant” (Mark 10:43). True joy comes when you “deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Jesus” (Luke 14:23).

In other words, Joy is …

Jesus
Others
Yourself

(in that order).
