Jesus Christ speaks the truth completely and openly.
He is honest with us about
our weaknesses and
the trouble that life in this world will bring.
But He forcefully teaches us and constantly reminds us
that we should always be joyful because of
the blessings and resources that are ours in Him.
“In the world you have tribulation.”
Pressure will come.
The world will squeeze us.
“In Me you have peace.”
We have wholeness, harmony, and well-being
by trusting Christ need by need.
“Take courage. I have overcome the world.”
We will never encounter any trouble or opposition
that Christ hasn’t already overcome.
