160523Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. (Romans 5:1-5, NRSV)

we can have peace in Jesus Christ in whom we have received grace upon grace, and in whom we are justified, even when the world seems like it is falling in around us.

We can boast only in Jesus, in the suffering we endure as He walks with us. Because suffering leads to endurance and endurance leads to character and character helps us to always hope in Him.

The only place our hope is is in Jesus, so follow Him and remember He walks with you.
