1 We have been made right with God because of our faith. Now we have peace with him because of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through faith in Jesus we have received God’s grace. In that grace we stand. We are full of joy because we expect to share in God’s glory. 3 And that’s not all. We are full of joy even when we suffer. We know that our suffering gives us the strength to go on. 4 The strength to go on produces character. Character produces hope. 5 And hope will never bring us shame. That’s because God’s love has been poured into our hearts. This happened through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Gracious God, give us ears to hear and hearts to receive your words of peace. Thank you for pouring your love into our hearts, and help us to be confident in all that Jesus has done for us.
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
