Are you pursuing God for joy? You'd better!! My experience tells me if I don't I'll go looking for joy someplace else (cars, tech toys, business success, food, etc.). More importantly, "God is most glorified in us when we are most... satisfied in him" (John Piper). Why? Because God really *IS* more satisfying than anything else!! Check out this summary article of pastor John's on "Christian Hedonism" in which he explains why we need to pursue God for joy.
