3Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; Romans 5:3 NIV
Finding glory in our suffering! What is this about? Look at it this way. There is power in the blood. That blood had to be shed. Jesus had to suffer. We have to take up our own crosses and follow Him to the grave so we too can rise up a new creation.
There is Glory in the struggles Jesus went through. There is glory in our suffering. For one, God never gives us nothing that we can’t handle. Also, there is a reason for everything that God does. Amen.
When we persevere then we strengthen our character. With that transformation comes a hope. We are to no longer live in shame! God has poured out His love and sent the Holy Spirit to quicken our hearts. That is our Hope in Christ Jesus.
4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:4-5 NIV
