Scripture: Romans 5:1-6
Time: 9:15 AM

 

“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 boast in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And 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.  You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.”
Promises of Perseverance:
1.  We are justified through Faith
2.  We have peace with God
3.  We have acceptable Grace
How I Persevere:
1.  Start with Jesus
2.  Pick a Target of Hope
3.  Remember that Perseverance Brings Glory
We can persevere because God is with us!
