When Peter wrote his first letter of the New Testament suggesting followers of Jesus could experience “joy unspeakable” one may imagine he was out of touch with the challenges of “real life”. Then again, considering the fact that he was writing to a church who were witnessing the martyrdom of many of it’s members it is clear; this is real life. Joy in Christ is available no matter what the circumstances. By faith in Christ, we are born again, yet to be born again again, with an inheritance kept in heaven for us! All glory to God.
