Re: Verse reading–1Peter 1:1-12 (day three)
“You believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.”  To believe something is not to close your eyes against reality and pretend that it is true. Rather, it is to order your life according to that which you believe–actually to live as though it were true. If you believe Jesus Christ is alive–bodily resurrected and soon to return–you will live as if all will be well, because for those who count on Jesus Christ, all will indeed be well.  And that is what joy actually is: the all-surrounding sense of well-being.  For the Christian, everything ends with well-being.  The one who counts on Christ knows that promise.
