Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (Romans 5:1-2)
Thank you, Jesus, for the peace that you pour into our hearts.
And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (Romans 5:3-5)
Father, thank you for all of the tribulations, perseverance, character, and hope that you have brought forth in our lives.
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6)
Jesus, thank you for dying for me while I was (and still am) a sinful man.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:7-8 )
Holy Spirit, please help us receive this give of love to us.
A word received: I AM looking after you; don’t be afraid.
