YOU Can Rejoice NOW!

"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy" (1 Peter 1:8).

Before, I thought that this "inxpressible and glorious joy" is only possible in the future -- especially, at the second coming of Jesus Christ.

But verse 6 states, "In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials."

In other words, even now that we may "suffer grief in all kinds of trials" we can still "greatly rejoice"!

If we really love Jesus Christ, if we believe in Him we can be filled with an "inexpressible and glorious joy" regardless of the trial that is now happening to us!

The question is: Do we have now the love of God and the faith in the Son?

The demons believe and they shudder. God's children believe and they greatly rejoice.
