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”. But when we see God's purpose for our pain and bring our afflictions into community we can discover God's comfort through God's people, This is the fifth message of this sermon series and was given by Pastor Peter Cho and comes from 2 Corinthians 1:3-11.
