One area that Christians have to grow in when we come to Christ is knowing what real peace is. Everyone can be happy and "rejoice" when life is going great. But when trials, tribulations, and even tragedies happen in our lives...it's really tough to have peace.

Coming to Christ doesn't mean life from there on will be heavenly everyday. This isn't heaven. When we get to heaven, there will be no more crying, dying, or pain. The old things will be done away with. We won't have to worry about getting old or losing loved ones. We won't have to worry about wars, famines, or diseases. So, knowing about our future helps us still rejoice now even in the middle of our struggles.

What can we do today? We see loved ones in Iraq and other places around the world fighting for freedom. We see people suffering everyday in various situations from the homeless to the abused. We hear rumors of nuclear weapons secretly being made in different in countries. How can we rejoice? Jesus has already overome to world, be strong in Him, He has already given us the victory. He's preparing a place for us now, so one day, we'll be where He is eternally. Rejoice. :o)

Very true. I liked the ending -- rejoice in what God is preparing for us.
