“The Grace to Rejoice”

The Word of God says, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.” (Phil. 4:4) These words of Paul, written from a Roman dungeon, should be an impetus to rejoice and a rebuke against our failure to rejoice. If Paul knew the grace that caused  him to rejoice in such a dire situation, why are we so quick to stop rejoicing during our trials? Do we not know the same grace?” (365 Days with Calvin, ed. by Joel Beeke)
