The Treasure of God-Revealed Reality

Eternal Weight of GloryEpisode 96 centers on a discussion of Philippians 4:4 in which we are commanded to “Rejoice In the Lord Always.”  In a world of real trouble, pain, oppression and heartbreak, how is it possible to do this. The discussion looks at other verses in Scripture in which the bigger picture, a God-revealed reality, is shown. Suffering and pain in this world are real, yet,  an “eternal weight of glory” must be considered and not simply the circumstances of this life..
