Joy in Hard Times

True joy originates with Jesus. He pointed his disciples to a life of joy found through faith in the gospel. As Jesus forms his life in us, we discover what it means to live in Christ, which includes living with a Jesus-shaped joy. Peter wrote to Christians struggling with various and severe trials. Their hope was not in the disappearance of their trials—at least not immediately. Instead, God would guard them through faith amid their trials. We all want joy, but Peter tells us where and how we can find true joy.
