Joy To The World | Happiness is Overrated part 4
God wants us to be happy. But as we’ve talked about - happiness doesn’t always happen because it requires something happening to give us this feeling of happiness.
Simple Man | Happiness is Overrated part 3
Happiness is based on happenings, happenstance, outside circumstances that we believe are going to illicit an emotional energy called happiness. Rather than enjoy it WHEN it HAPPENS we can develop this almost-addiction to it.
Pride (In The Name of Love) | Happiness is Overrated part 2
Ultimately, the point of pride is independence. “I don’t need others, I got this all on my own because I’m awesome.” We see this in Satan who wanted to be separated from God...And we see that as humans, where we want to live apart from God’s ways. But humility is about dependence. It’s about acknowledging that we are created, and God’s our Creator, and we need his love, grace, and forgiveness, and need to be connected to one another!
My Loneliness Is Killing Me | Happiness is Overrated
Happiness is fickle, and joy is fixed. Happiness goes up and down, depending on what’s happening. The root word, “hap” means “chance” or “luck”, so when the chance falls favorably toward you, you're happy. …When it doesn't, you're unhappy. But you can be going through horrible, unhappy circumstances, and yet have joy.
A Point of View Above Perishing | Clarity part 4
You want clarity on who you are and what you’re here to do... Have a point of view above simply perishing. God has created you on purpose with a purpose, to point other people to Him.•And while we’re here, we have work to do!
Lenses and Filters with Pastor Eric Gamero | Clarity part 3
We need to filter what we see through the lens of God's identity. We’re talking about clarity, about vision - And a lens determines what we see and how much we see, and filter determines how we see it.
If we had to describe these podcasts by UNITED in two words, We'd have to say "Spiritually Delicious ".
Great teachings from a great church that truly is the perfect place for imperfect people!
