We rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Not only this, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces perseverance;
and perseverance, proven character;
and proven character, hope: and hope doesn’t disappoint us,
because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
For while we were yet weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man. Yet perhaps for a good person someone would even dare to die.
But God commends his own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
