Studying the Truths of the New Testament | 06
The discipline of study involves engaging God’s Word which is declared to be profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Read or listen to Romans 5:1–5.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We have also obtained access through him by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we boast in the hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also boast in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
What does it mean to have peace with God? Why would a God with whom we have peace allow suffering in our lives?
What does it mean to “rejoice in the hope of the glory of God”?
The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.
In addition to our mentors from the Bible, our siblings in Christ also serve as guides in our journey of growth in knowledge of the Lord.
