Text:Romans 5:2-5By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;4And patience, experience; and experience, hope:5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

CHRIST IN US THE HOPE OF GLORY

Colossians 1:26-27Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:27To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

ESTEEM GRACE

Luke 17:7-10But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle (serving), will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field (work is done), Go and sit down to meat?8And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me (no rest, continue to serve), till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?9[mh, may not] Doth [regard, esteem] he thank [grace] that servant (who came in from the field) because he did the things that were commanded him? (he was just) I trow not. 10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.

THE FINAL WORD

Revelation 22:21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
