Romans 5:1-5. NCV.
1 Since we have been made right with God by our faith, we have peace with God. This happened through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 who through our faith has brought us into that blessing of God’s grace that we now enjoy. And we are happy because of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory. 3 We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience. 4 And patience produces character, and character produces hope. 5 And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts. He gave us his love through the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to us.
When Christ came to this earth, He fulfilled the law, He died for us, and resurrected, He eliminated all other notable rules that Moses put down as a requirement for us to fulfill the Law and left us with just one word BELIEVE.
It is through our faith we are justified. Not through works for by works No man is justified. Yes! It Sounds really simple but True; That is how good our God is! Simple and impactful. His only requirement is that we believe in Jesus Christ and Receive Him as our Lord and Savior, and believe His death on the cross, being the first begotten from dead . We then have received His salvation and we are at peace with Him. We are then free and we have by God’s grace and for Jesus Christ Sake made whole.
When we call on the LORD, He answers Beyond that which we ask. He will show us great things that aren’t even on our knowing. “Ask me and I will tell you Remarkable Secret you do not know About Things To Come” Jeremiah 33:3
God is good. Seek Him. You will never regret seeking the LORD. He is good, faithful, and true. Get excited for whatever it is God will show you when you call on His name. “You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need] My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word].(Psalm 27:8). AMP
The scripture in our reading today says “We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience. 4 And patience produces character, and character produces hope. 5 And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts”.
The bible says the expectations of the righteous shall not be cut short. Have you ever sincerely expected a miracle over a particular thing you know that is beyond man and is only God’s intervention that can make it happen? How do your heart feels while waiting if actually you’re in dare need of that ?
Yes! the hope in God That His counsel shall stand and Is Him who will make all things to be possible is sufficient enough for you to wait patiently without being in a hurry because in this case all your senses and believes are in Him already since it does not lie on you to hasten the process of actualizing the needed result. You must build your enduring capacity by working on your character because, it has been said your success may take you to the top but is your character that will sustain it.
We are matching forward to a better life style since our great joy and happiness depends on the love of God and His favour towards us therefore we are made right by our faith in Christ Jesus. There’s no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus. Your light afflictions is but for a moment for nothing is impossible to them that believes in Him.
Do have a great week and Remain in His Presence Amen.
