Pursuing happiness? Or pursuing God?

Trinity Downtown > Blog > Pursuing happiness? Or pursuing God?

No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Luke 16:13 ESV

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. American Declaration of Independence

Here’s how you can participate:
    • Don’t forget to mark your calendar for a special Congregational Assembly being held at 10:15am on Sunday, September 25th in the Gym. The congregation will be considering the Call of Pastor Lonnie Gonzales as Pastor of Outreach Ministries.

Dear Members and Friends of Trinity Downtown:

From the start, we Americans have been focused on the “pursuit of Happiness” mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. This relentless concentration has created the most materially prosperous nation the planet has ever seen. God has blessed our land with abundant resources, and we’ve (generally) used them wisely over the centuries to build the prosperity we enjoy. 

So, despite our country’s numerous problems, race and class discrimination and other sins, God has blessed us by planting our families here in these United States. We take for granted what many (perhaps most) humans would value as luxuries.

This Sunday at Trinity Downtown, we’ll be discussing Jesus’ challenge to us on what it REALLY means to unselfishly use what He has given us…not for our own comfort, but for the benefit of our community and God’s invisible Kingdom. Come learn how placing your doubts, suffering, distractions, hopes, fears, uncertainties AND YOUR ASSETS in the hands of the Lord can lessen our stress load and bring deep transformation in our hearts. Celebrate with us the depth of Jesus’ love for us and find out how you can live a life of significance, filled with meaning.  Discover how following Jesus can help you and your family navigate around the minefields of life. I promise you it will make a tremendous difference in your life.
