“I have often longed to save those whom I love from the strain and stress of suffering, but I never could; and today I have read these words in Coneybeare’s translation of Romans 5: 3-5.
Suffering, steadfastness, soundness, hope, love – what great words these are and how arresting is the order in which they are set. We may not change the order. Eternal Love set them in that order and Eternal Love will justify that order if only we go on in peace and are never offended in Him.”
