A Christian Can Be Cheerful in the Midst of Suffering


Date : 2018-09-06
Speaker : Professor Paul Schaller
1 Peter 1:3-6
(ESV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials.

Hymn: TLH 201, st. 1,4,5: Jesus Lives! The Victory’s Won Organ Audio

1. Jesus lives! The victory’s won! 
Death no longer can appall me; 
Jesus lives! Death’s reign is done! 
From the grave Christ will recall me. 
Brighter scenes will then commence; 
This shall be my confidence. 

4. Jesus lives! I know full well 
Naught from me His love shall sever; 
Life nor death nor powers of hell 
Part me now from Christ forever. 
God will be a sure Defense; 
This shall be my confidence. 

5. Jesus lives! and now is death 
But the gate of life immortal; 
This shall calm my trembling breath 
When I pass its gloomy portal. 
Faith shall cry, as fails each sense, 
Jesus is my confidence!
