RomansAn Adventure in Philippi11Romans 5:3-5 teaches us that suffering produces perseverance, which leads to character and ultimately hope, which does not disappoint. This skit follows the story of Paul and Silas when they are jailed and mistreated in Philippi. Contrary to what we would expect, Paul and Silas sing and praise God, strangely glad to have been counted worthy to suffer for the gospel. It explains how Paul could later write these verses to the Roman church, genuinely desiring for them the opportunity to glory in their sufferings. Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because Godís love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.Complete7
