It’s Really Quite Simple

"Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live." (from Eugene Peterson's "the Message")

Or as written in the NIV version: "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."

This is the way God wants us to live, according to Paul, and it does sound so simple. But what does it mean in real life? Is it even possible?
