5 Therefore, having been justified by faith, [a]we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,2 through whom we also have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and [b]we celebrate in hope of the glory of God.3 And not only this, but [c]we also celebrate in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance;4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope;5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Colossians 3:12-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)
