Trinity Sunday - Romans 5:1-5
June 12 @ 10:00am
Pastor Steve Clark preaching
For this Sunday, READ
Romans 5:1-5 and REFLECT: The apostle Paul says a LOT in just
these few verses. What stands out for you as a main point he's
trying to make? What question(s) would you want to ask Paul about
these verses? Verse 3 says that we "rejoice"
("boast" in some translations) in our suffering. How do
you understand that? Have you ever felt capable of doing that? Why
or why not?
