Check out Romans 5:1-5

Bible Study/Devotion on Romans 5:1-5 October 2, 2021


The other day Romans 5:1-5 came up in my morning devotions. It particularly hit home with as I have been dealing with a lot of difficulties in my life lately. They have This passage helped me to see my difficulties in a different light – or perhaps it was a reminder of the truth buried in my heart. All of us have been dealing with difficulties of some sort or another and I thought I would share some of my thoughts in hopes that we might all grow closer to God and remember His promises when we are experience difficulty and pain.


I will post my own answers in a week or two. I would like to polish up my thoughts.


Romans 5:1-5


1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 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. 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us. (NIV 1984)
