Bible Study & Devotional 199

Guiding Scripture: Romans 5:2-4, “‘through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character, and character, hope. ‘
🔴Mature in Christ
Paul continues to teach and clarify how Abraham being the appointed father of many nations, was righteous because of his faith. The Apostle Paul urged his audience and us to understand the access we have to grace through Jesus Christ.
Not only can we stand firm in God’s favor, but we can also rejoice and be full of joy right now.
Brothers and Sisters, I don’t know what you are going through right now but tell Satan to stop controlling your thoughts. He is here to kill, steal, and destroy. Are you allowing him to scheme and cause division?
As you read today’s passages and pray about your relationship with Jesus, and think about your communication skills. For Jesus to work miracles in our lives, we must completely surrender to Him. That means we let God be God. Jesus can develop our character and help us produce habits that create joy through patient endurance.
Endurance is the ability given to us through God to exert ourselves and remain active. Through the Holy Spirit, we can resist, withstand, and recover from different traumas or fatigue. It is time to access the various tools God gives and mature in Christ.
Let’s Pray Romans 5:2-4 together.
Lord, we give you praise! Thank you for your patient mercy and grace; we love you, Lord. Help us delight in our hope of experiencing the Glory of God. We know that there will be trouble, sufferings, hardship, and affliction, but our trials can produce endurance with your guidance. Help us to communicate with you, Lord, so that we can be beneficial to one another. We want to be wise stewards of our time. Amen
