12/11/16 Joy In Trials

“When we put our faith in Jesus, the blood He willingly shed on our behalf washes away our sins and restores or relationship with God. This knowledge gives us hope and joy, not just when things are going well for us, but even in times of great trouble. In fact, this knowledge leads us to embrace times of trouble, because we know that through trouble we learn to endure and grow stronger, which in turn grows our character and increases our hope and joy in Him. God gave us His Holy Spirit to live in our hearts and fill us with His love, and through the Holy Spirit we have assurance that our hope is not in vain.”

Romans 5:1-5
