Pondering Romans 15:7-13

Book-of-RomansYou can click HERE to read the passage.

This may be my briefest pondering post yet. There is a verse in this passage that is one of my favorite in the New Testament. It is verse 13…

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

What do i love about it?

  • It reminds me that I serve a God that offers hope in a world that so often offers none.
  • It reminds me that joy and peace are my birthright and the birthright  of every believer.
  • hopeIt reminds me that my life should overflow into the lives of others as I trust in God.
  • It reminds me that I am dependent upon the Holy Spirit if I am to live a supernaturally empowered life.
  • And it equips me with a powerful blessing that I can pray for others.

So… “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
