“For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous” (I John 5:3). If we go through a situation in fleshly works and religious form it is not joyous, but grievous. However, the person who has the love of God does not sense a burden in doing God’s will.
This principle, if comprehended in areas of faith, would revolutionize lives and relationships. What the world sees as a tragedy actually brings joy into every dimension of obedience, and we can truly say that Jesus Christ is beautiful for situations. To every circumstance there is a divine connotation and an incomprehensible value. We have to face life knowing that, just as God had the power to raise Jesus in His humanity, it is that same power that makes situations beautiful for us.
Our lives cannot be shaken if we are living in the “faith-world” of Jesus Christ. The bottom will never fall out if the bottom is grace and our fellowship with Jesus Christ will never end if our eyes are focused upon Him through the eyes of the cross. “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” (II Corinthians 4:17).
