What is the good life? Is it all about being happy? Should Christians pursue happiness in their daily lives? What did Jesus teach about happiness?

51% of Gen Z say that their goal in life is to be happy. Everyone wants to be happy, and we spend our time, energy, and money to get it. It can be exhausting! But what if the happiness that we’re striving for isn’t the happiness that we were created for?

The truth is that there is a path to true happiness, and it’s found in Jesus. This week on the podcast Jonathan sits down with Dr. Derwin Gray to discuss his new book, The Good Life: What Jesus Teaches About Finding True Happiness. Join us this week as we talk about living life as God intended, true happiness as defined in the Beatitudes, how happiness and holiness are two sides of the same coin, and much more.

Dr. Derwin L. Gray is the founding and lead Pastor of Transformation Church, a multiethnic, multigenerational, mission-shaped community in Indian Land, South Carolina, located just south of Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition to his role at Transformation Church, Derwin speaks at conferences nationwide. He is the author of several books including Hero: Unleashing God’s Power in a Man’s Heart, Limitless Life: You Are More Than Your Past When God Holds Your Future, Crazy Grace for Crazy Times Bible Study, The High-Definition Leader, and the book we talked about today, The Good Life.
