1 Peter 1:6
6 Wherein <en> <hos> ye greatly rejoice
<agalliao>, though now <arti> for a season <oligos>, if
<ei> need <dei> be <esti>, ye are in heaviness <lupeo>
through <en> manifold <poikilos> temptations <peirasmos>:KJV-Interlinear
6 In this you greatly rejoice,
even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by
various trials, NASB
It is this hope, or
this confidence, of a salvation (freedom from death or permanent separation
from God), of an eternal inheritance promised and held in trust by God, that should
bring you tremendous joy and inner happiness in your life.
This life on this
earth is a short life.We all will only
be here but a few decades.And, even if
you lived to be a thousand years old, your life here would still be considered
very short when compared to all of eternity.
Eternity is an
endless number of years.It is billions
of trillions of quadrillions of years and much more.How can you compare any set number to
infinity? There is no comparison.
Most folks consider
their life as an endless repetition of days.We get up in the morning, go to work, work and then we come home.We spend our free time doing chores or
hobbies.We all expect that a paycheck
will always be there to pay the bills and debts, with some left over for
entertainment.Most folks expect that
their health will be reasonably well for most of their life.Most folks expect that their life will continue
in its seemingly endless repetition, without much in the way of
interruption.That becomes their subtle
security in life.
But wait.Hasn t there been quite the stir in recent
days regarding the economy?Aren t there
endless possibilities of accidents, injuries, health issues that might arise,
business downturns or layoffs?Is life,
here in this world really that secure?
And of course the
answer is no.
For many folks
accidents or handicaps, age or social ostracism, or just plain bad luck, follow
their life like stink on stink.Troubles
follow everyone, and even billionaires have their troubles.No one is excluded from life's problems.
And certainly no one
is excluded from their ultimate death and cessation of this life.The one problem that you cannot escape, or
buy your way out of.
But for the most of
us, life is an endless string of pressure filled days.Living hand to mouth and living under
constant pressures from day to day, our lives just drag on and on and on.And if we are lucky, then maybe there will be
some good times mixed in.And if we are
pursuing our daily Bible study, then our lives are filled with Gods promises
and our dreams of one day having far better than we could ever have in this
The trials in this
world are many, and range from broken finger nails to broken lives, but Gods
promises are many as well, and His promises are certain and guaranteed.
