Marks of the Spirit-filled church: 1 of 3: Joyful

John 16:16-28 David Cameron has stated that improving our society’s sense of happiness is the great goal of his government: he wants to make happiness the new GDP. Pursuing happiness is what drives us on a personal scale as well. As St Augustine put it: “Every man, whatsoever his condition, desires to be happy.” So happiness is clearly what it’s all about, but how exactly do we find this illusive thing? Listen in as we consider Jesus’ teaching about how to find invincible joy.
