Monday – Romans 5:1–5; Psalms 103
What are the results and benefits of justification according to these passages?

Thursday – Romans 5:3; Psalm 119:65–72; Hebrews 12:11
“More than that we rejoice in our sufferings.” Why do we, as Christians, rejoice in our sufferings?
Friday – Romans 5:3–5; Genesis 39; Daniel 3
According to Romans 5:3–5 we rejoice in our sufferings because of the fruit it produces in our lives. What fruit is it? Why does it take suffering to produce it?
“God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” What does that mean? Why should that truth encourage us, strengthen us, and give us great confidence to live for God?
