“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

— John 16:33

Some have been guilty of preaching a form of Christianity that purports a life without trial or tribulation. But Jesus emphatically declared, “In the world, you will have tribulation.”

We’re not promised ease. We have no guarantee of tranquil, serene security. Though peace is available to us in Christ, as this verse makes clear. The tribulation is more certain than the peace.

Rejoice in the reality that in Christ we are more than conquerors by His overcoming power and might.
