Therefore, since we have been made righteous through his faithfulness combined with our faith,a we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
We have access by faith into this grace in which we stand through him, and we boast in the hope of God's glory.
But not only that! We even take pride in our problems, because we know that trouble produces endurance,
endurance produces character, and character produces hope.
This hope doesn't put us to shame, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
While we were still weak, at the right moment, Christ died for ungodly people.
