I responded to this question on aother blog and thought to share my response :
“Absolutely, more than happiness, delight, tremendous unquenchable joy. The whole Person of God, of Christ, redemption, being reconciled to the only, amazing, living God. the whole thing is thrilling beyond imagining when it truly sinks in. We, i believe still have many doors of revelation to have opened to us that we may plunge deeply into the heart of God, and grasp the fact that these things are not just nice, they are true, this is reality.
And when I commune with Him in prayer, and I realise that this is He, the Creator and Sustainer of all, and I have met Him, I am in relationship with Him, it terrifies me as much as it makes me cry as much as it fills me with uproarious laughter and unending joy. And the mere thought of Jesus causes tears of gratitude to well up in my eyes, tears of joy, joy unspeakable and full of glory.
Does the gospel make you happy? Decidedly yes.”
