Feeling Good

“I just want to feel good, have some fun and be happy.”

You might be thinking, “Since this is a church blog the quote above isn’t the way I should feel. But to be honest, I can’t help wondering what’s wrong with wanting to feel good, have some fun and be happy?”

The answer to that question is, “Absolutely nothing!” Christians would definitely be very warped people if we only wanted to experience pain, suffering and unhappiness. The great difference between feeling good as a Christian and feeling good as a non-believer is the goal. Christians see feeling good as a result of our relationship with Jesus Christ. For many non-believers, pursuing those things which make them feel good is the primary goal of life. For Christians, we have limits and boundaries which protect us from distorting our desire to feel good. On the other hand, without Christ it is not difficult to find oneself living by the motto: “If it feels good, do it,” which has led to incredible physical and emotional pain in the lives of countless people.

Rather than restricting or forbidding human pleasure, God designed that part of us and tells us how best to enjoy this blessing without it taking over. If lately, you’ve been asking yourself, “Am I having fun yet?”, join us for one of our weekend services. You may discover that God is the Master of feeling good, having some fun and being happy.
