"Jesus is Happy"Stuart JonesIf you’ve been a part of First Christian for years, there’s something you know. If you’re a first time guest, there’s something you’ll soon find out. First Christian Church is a happy place. Yes, we’re very serious about our mission of leading people closer to Jesus. And yes, there are plenty of times when we encounter bumps in the road. But in the midst of a serious task and the struggles that go along with it, First Christian is a place filled with laughter, joy, and good humor. An angel announced the birth of Jesus with these words: Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Luke 2:10 NIV Great joy came to the people Jesus healed, those He taught and those He forgave. It’s easy to imagine plenty of laughter, and maybe even some practical jokes, being shared by Jesus and the twelve guys who spent three years following Him. People who followed Jesus must have come to this conclusion--Jesus is happy. With Him as our model, we should be happy, too.
