Does Jesus really want us to be happy or does he just want to us to follow Him and His religion? Jesus just loves you period. If you truly love someone you just want the best for Him and you want them to be happy.
Jesus does know us better then we know ourselves and He knows that we often go after things that will only bring us temporary happiness. Jesus is the only way to long lasting happiness. So yes Jesus wants us to be happy.
