The Duty of Man: Pursuing Joy in Christ

Every man and woman intuitively and unconsciously makes every decision out of a desire for happiness and joy. But many believe that the chief end of the Christian life is duty-bound joyless obedience. But joyless service as the essence of Christian virtue only covers up the realty of our indifference to God. The liberating truth of Scripture is that we are not commanded to turn away from our desire for joy, but rather to glut that desire for joy...in Christ! We are to pursue our joy in Christ so hard that we might be shaken by no tragedy, and have our mouths "put out of taste" for any earthly temptation. That is the liberating and demanding truth of following Jesus, and the end to which every man and woman should live...to be glad in God!
