GOD'S LOVE IS IN OUR HEARTS. THEREFORE, EVEN WITH THE SUFFERINGS (THE PAIN), WE HAVE ENDURANCE, CHARACTER, AND HOPE.
Folks, suffering doesn't feel good. Sickness, lack, broken relationships, etc., don't feel good. That stuff will break your heart. That's the truth, but we can endure because God's grace and power are magnified within us when we are BROKEN.
Wasn't Christ broken on a tree and labeled a curse? Come on! Yet power to save the world was in Him...the abused dead man on a tree. DID HE STAY DEAD? NO, THE HOLY GHOST REVIVED HIM. Now His Spirit lives in us!
YOU'RE RISING UP! Don't give up.
There's power in you and me...Yes you, the one folks keep rejecting, the one who's struggling, the one who's sick...RISE UP AND PRAISE YOUR GOD WHO LOVES YOU TO THE GALAXIES AND BACK!
3 Not only that, but we REJOICE in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces ENDURANCE, 4 and endurance produces CHARACTER, and character produces HOPE, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
