Rom 5:1–11

Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace
with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in
which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of God’s glory.
Not only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering
produces endurance,
and endurance, character, and character, hope.
And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out
in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the
(For rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good
person perhaps someone might possibly dare to die.)
But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still
sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, because we have now been declared righteous by his blood,
we will be saved through him from God’s wrath.
For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death
of his Son, how much more, since we have been reconciled, will we be saved
by his life?
Not only this, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have now received this reconciliation.

One thought:

Love comes in many shapes and sizes, but what love could cause the Father to send the Son to be slain for sinners?

Three questions:

What does it mean to have peace with God in Romans 5?

Do you rejoice in God through Jesus Christ because of your reconciliation?

Smile today, you have been reconciled to God through Jesus Christ.



Praise God for His love and grace in sending His Son for sinners like us. Give thanks that Jesus died on the cross so that we could have peace we God and avoid His wrath. Ask God to help you and others rejoice in all occasions.
