Click here to go to Romans 5
The first 11 verses of this chapter are just so encouraging! Paul starts off by reminding us because we are made right through Christ, we have peace with God.
In verses 3 - 5 we're reminded that our trials are for a reason:
3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And
this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God
loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts
with his love.
Sometimes it's hard in the midst of the trial to remember God loves us, I love the "how dearly God loves us" loves.
Thank the Lord for that Love!
