This morning I spent some time pondering some verses in Romans. I was struck by how much what we all long for is provided to us through Jesus. Jesus is the solution and often, walking with Him, takes us through some difficult times. But the end is secure in Him. What we long for is found in Jesus.
Take a moment to read this passage.
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 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.” (Rm. 5:1-5)
Here are a few questions for reflection:
- What are your longings?
- What does this passage bring to your mind?
- What hope does this passage give you?
Take a moment to thank Him for all He has done and is doing for you.
