Complete Synopsis Prerequisites: None
Jesus came that we might have life, and that more abundantly, he says in John 10:10. Through God’s Word, we learn that God wants our joy to be complete (2 John 1:12) and that the result of our faith is overwhelming joy (1 Peter 1:8-9). Why then does it seem that Christians are generally not filled with joy unspeakable as a part of their daily lives? Not that we are exempt from trials or sorrows, but that we are able to enjoy internal peace and joy on a consistent basis. Now that Jesus has ascended to heaven, is this possible in our world today? This course explains with a resounding, “Yes!” and instructs on how to explore happiness here and now when we remove any myths, lies, barriers, false promises, and traps we have come to believe from the modern culture in which we live.
