Our hope in Jesus Christ is not a false hope. Today on A Study In The Word, Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and panel read Romans 5:3-6 discussing how the character of an individual is changed when we come into covenant with Jesus Christ. Scripture tells us to glory in tribulation, as it will work patience, experience, and hope. Our faith in Christ can altar our circumstances, and His love in us can bring a change of heart to love others. We cannot exhaust the benefits of justification. God allows life’s difficulties so that our faith will grow and be strengthened, as we trust on Him through it. 1st Timothy 6:12 says, fight the good fight of the faith; it is sometimes hard to believe that God is in our struggles, but He is always working something out for our good. How much more will He rescue those who are in covenant relationship with Him?
