As we live as Christians, we face struggles and opposition. Shouldn’t life be easier? Should we find a way to make it easier?
Sometimes the deck appears to stacked and it’s hard to see how life will do anything but go from bad to worse. How do we have joy then?
As we think about joy in dark places, Paul turns to those who are actually preaching the Gospel with the aim of discrediting him. What do we do when people and circumstances seem to want to hurt us?
When things come crashing down and everything feels broken, how can we possibly think about “joy”? We turn to Paul’s letter to the Philippians to find out.
