There is brokenness in the world and when times are tough it is easy to feel like God is punishing us. Peter tried to talk Jesus out of dying on the cross. He wanted him to stay on earth, most likely out of fear. The unknown in the world is scary, but we can trust in what we do know. Our sins were transferred off of us and that weight has been lifted. We are part of God's heavenly kingdom, so while life on earth may not be heavenly, our life after earth will be amazing.
