We struggle to look forward to and live for eternity because our distorted view of heaven is not all that compelling to us. However, God's promise is that ultimate joy awaits us in heaven and for eternity, when we will see the Lord face to face. This is the final message of the series on Joy and was given by Pastor Peter Cho.
We struggle to find joy in our trials because it is painful and we do not understand God’s purpose in it. But God allows trials to come into our lives because through them he refines his image in us, and reveals his love to us, and when we embrace this purpose we can persevere by faith. This message comes from the sermon series "Joy in the Journey" and was given by Pastor Peter Cho.
When we are unable to share our sadness and grief it can lead us to “despair of life itself”.

The enemy works tirelessly to steal our joy through anxiety - tempting us to look inward. But God has given us instructions on how to protect it - by looking upward. Through prayer and giving thanks we are directed back to the source of our joy...God himself. This is the fourth message given by Pastor Peter Cho in the "Joy in the Journey" series and comes from Philippians 4:4-7.
