“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.” (Romans 5:1-5)
As I meditated over what I read over the last week, I came back to this passage and, again, couldn’t get away from the beauty of it. I tried to pick out one verse of these five to share here, but I couldn’t. The whole section is SO good, and it’s just meant to be all together for a complete picture of the triumph of faith.
If you’re reading along with me through Romans, what passage was YOUR highlight of the week? I’d love for you to share in the comments!
P.S. See this original post for info about this photo challenge and more about this reading plan I’m using this summer for the book of Romans (and I’d love to have you join in!)!

Romans 4:7&8…Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.
Ahhhhh…to rest in that truth.
