Romans 5:1-5 (NKJV)
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

On May 25th 1971 Sergeant Michael Willetts used his body to shield a man, a woman and two children from a bomb thrown by a member of the IRA. Thanks to his bravery, Willetts was the only fatal casualty of the bomb attack. As he was being removed by ambulance, he and a number of injured policemen were jeered by local youths who screamed obscenities at them. He was posthumously awarded the George Cross.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (ERV)
That is why we never give up. Our physical body is becoming older and weaker, but our spirit inside us is made new every day. We have small troubles for a while now, but these troubles are helping us gain an eternal glory. That eternal glory is much greater than our troubles. So we think about what we cannot see, not what we see. What we see lasts only a short time, and what we cannot see will last forever.
