Message of the Day: Hope That Enables Perseverance
“And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.” (Romans 5:3-4, NKJV)
The Bible refers to the Christians’ anticipation of future glory as hope. Hope that is not merely a wish but the expectation of something that is certain. It is an assured belief that enables believers to persevere through difficulties, and in the process develop Christian character.
They have purpose and confidence in this perseverance because the love of God fills their hearts through the Holy Spirit (5:3-5)
May this hope sustain us until the day we meet the Lord!
