If God can love us when we were at our worst, then nothing we can ever do will wear out his love for us. This truth is amazing to me.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 NIV)
Romans 5:3-4 We rejoice in suffering not because we like pain, but because we know God is using life's difficulties and Satan's attacks to build our character. Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character, and character, hope!
