BDBD Is Romans 15:1-13

How is it possible to have hope and peace in troubled uncertain times, with people in power who only think of themselves at the expense of the weak and helpless? Looking at the terrible actions of many can suck hope out of anyone.
The answer to the question is in verse 5. God gives endurance and encouragement. When I am down, God can and will loft me up. I have learned to stop, turn to him, and sing a song of prayer and praise.
Added to that direction verse 4 also gives qnotjer direction as to where to find hope. The Bible teaches endurance and encouragement. Endurance and encouragement provide hope. When I think of those in the Bible who had no way to hope find hope, I endure. Jesus said, “I leave you peace.” His words provide hope.
