Message of the Day: Hope That Produces Perseverance

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.” (Romans 5:3-4, NKJV)

When God justifies people, he brings them into a relationship of peace with himself. In his grace he accepts them into his holy presence and assures them the hope of one day sharing his glory.

Our anticipation of future glory is what the Bible calls hope. Hope in this sense is not a mere wish for something, but the expectation of something that is certain. It is an assured belief that enables us to persevere through difficulties, and in the process develop Christian character.

We have purpose and confidence in this perseverance because the love of God fills our hearts through the Holy Spirit. We can rejoice in suffering because we know that it is not meaningless. Part of God’s purpose is to produce character in us.
