Romans 5:2-5 The Passion Translation (TPT)
2 Our faith guarantees us permanent access into this marvelous kindness[a] that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory!
3 But that’s not all! Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. 4 And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope. 5 And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy,[b] because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us![c]
