Romans 1-8

Man, Paul is one smart dude! Romans is honestly one of the most brilliant documents ever written. It's so complex, though. Each phrase is packed with meaning. It cracks me up that in 6:19 he informs us that "I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations." I'm going to start using that line when I preach! LOL!!!

This is the passage that hit me (probably because it really compliments what we discussed in yesterday's sermon).

Romans 5:1-5 (ESV)
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. More than that, 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.
