Romans 5:1-5
a Therefore, since we have been justified by faith,
For this reason we have been justification (declared righteousness) through faith
b we 1 have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
and we have received pardon from God the Father through Jesus
Through him we have also c obtained access by faith 1 into this grace d in which we stand,
and faith is the means we have been given to access his grace, which we are now partakers of
and e we 2 rejoice 3 in hope of the glory of God.
and we find joy in the hope of God's glory
Not only that, but we f rejoice in our sufferings,
and we can take joy and even rejoice in our sufferings
knowing that suffering g produces endurance,
and that suffering produces the ability to endure
and endurance produces character,
and that ability to endure produces a more Christlike character
and character produces hope,
and that Christian character creates hope
and h hope does not put us to shame,
and that hope keeps us from being condemned and shamed
because God’s love i has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
because the love of God has been put in us and changed us through the Holy Spirit that indwells us.
Peace: In a world or turmoil, we can have peace. And not just peace from the world of sin that we now live, but peace from the wrath of God that we deserved.
We also see a trinitarian work here. We have peace with the Father through the Son and will not be put to shame because of the love of the Spirit.
