A Hope That Rejoices – My Daily Bread!
Our call to rejoice in our hope is found in Romans 5: 1-5, NIV, which tells us:
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who He has given us.”
Saints this passage reminds me that we must learn to depend on the power available to us from Christ, who lives in us by the Holy Spirit. For in the Spirit our hearts are justified through faith; and we rejoice in the hope, for we stand in His grace! And we rejoice in it all, yes even the sufferings for the hope that does not disappoint! For the Love of God that is poured out without limit and gives us peace!
