Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus
Christ, 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. And hope does not
put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who
has been given to us. Romans 5:1-6
