We saw last week that the result of our justification is peace with God. This week we see one of the benefits of this peace.

As Christians we all face various trials. God promises to use all of these for our good. The trials God allows us to go through produce perseverance in us. This perseverance, or holding up through trials, shows us the character of our lives.

As we see this good character in our lives, we have hope - both that we are saved and that our destination is heaven.
