King James Version (KJV)
33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Cheerfulness is one of the marks of the life of a Christian. Does this mean we will always feel cheerful? No. Does this mean we never feel sad, depressed, or anxious? No. But, eventually we gain the victory over the tribulations of this life through the One who has overcome the world, conquering death, hell, and the grave.
Song: This one is vintage Southern Gospel Quartet Music from the 'golden era.' The Blackwood Brothers teamed up with the Statesmen Quartet to dominate the concert trail during the 50s to the mid-60s. Here you will find the Blackwood Brothers singing a song that opened hundreds of concerts and Gospel music radio shows throughout the era--'Give the World a Smile.'
