Joy-filled missionary disciples
Every aspect of our life influences our state of wellbeing. It’s a complex combination of a person's physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social health factors. In this presentation we will focus on well-being from a spiritual perspective. Jesus was the most calm, peaceful, content, and happy person. A review of Jesus’s life reveals some interesting “ingredients” for ideal mental health. When we encounter at least one Christian who is clearly joyful, welcoming and in relationship with God, a curiosity about one’s own relationship with God is created. This curiosity leads to openness and seeking.
