If you’re serving Jesus, it’s not supposed to be about happiness, right? The goal of submitting to Christ is not to assure your own sense of satisfaction.
That’s true, as far as the statement goes. Serving God is about faithfulness and obedience, not about seeking personal happiness. But serving God and others in ways you were created and gifted for brings a natural sense of joy and soul satisfaction. These feelings come from the synergy of your life connected to God’s Spirit and involved in a realm of Kingdom missions work that you were designed and equipped for. These things come to you from living within God’s plan and design.
