What Do You Think?

Which is God more interested in?  Our holiness or our happiness?

What are your thoughts?

  1. Which comes first the chicken or the egg? 🙂 Since we can never be holy on our own we will never be happy on our own. He is pleased with a repentant heart that seeks to know Him in all of His holiness. As we are drawn closer to Him, happiness will envelop our soul.

  2. our holiness. He even commanded for us to be holy. Happiness, I believe, is a by-product of walking in His way. Especially walking WITH Him. In His presence is fullness of joy. At His right hand are pleasures evermore.

  3. Our happiness, of course. Isn’t that what life is all about? 🙂

    Just kiddin’.

    • I have found you can be happy in every situation if you take you eyes of the circumstance and keep them on the the Lord

  4. God is interested in holiness. The word states without holiness no man shall see God.

  5. Holiness brings us joy along with all the beauty created as the Holy Spirit helps us walk out in our flesh the nature of Christ. See Galatians 2:20 and Romans 7:18. Our happiness is not a goal that I find in the Bible. The pursuit of happiness is flawed because it centers around me not Christ Jesus. As I deny myself (my pursuit of happiness) take up my cross and follow Him, I find so much more than happiness…i find fellowship with God where His presence is matchless. No earthly pleasure compares to the abiding joy in His presence and the expectation of dwelling in Him forever.

  6. Our holiness is His greatest interest
