What Baptism Portrays. But “peace with God” is different. The first verses of 1-11 look at justification as the basis and the beginning of all of God’s blessings for the believer. Paul sets out to do just this in verses 3b-8 as he demonstrates the basis for boasting in tribulation on two different grounds. In agonizing pain, our bodies cry out in protest. Scripture: Romans 5:20–6:4. Details or purchase. These answers will be found right in the Bible passage. Peace and Hope. The first proof is found in verses 3b-4, where Paul informs us that we can rightly boast in what God produces in us, by means of our tribulations. Hype sustains for a moment, but it fails with time and scrutiny. 1. And this same love assures us of the hope we have in God’s future promises being fulfilled. Christ's death weakens our sinful nature so that we can have victory over sin. For we see the “timing” of this act of love, which Paul urges us to consider. These questions will encourage one to ask, "What does the passage mean to me?" A. The war with God is over. What way does God use? (2) Verse 1 speaks of our justification as the result of faith; verse 9 speaks of justification as the result of the redemptive work of Christ—“by His blood.” While both are true, Paul is now stressing that our justification originates with God, as a demonstration of His love. 6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. The “glory of God” is the promised blessing of enjoying eternity in the presence and glory of God, in His kingdom. How do hard times bring about perseverance? But it is true. Romans 5:5 and hope putteth not to shame; because the love of God hath been shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit which was given unto us. Now, in these first 11 verses of Romans 5, Paul begins to expound some of the many benefits which accompany our salvation and which flow from our justification by faith. ( A) through faith, ( B) we[ a] have peace. But God assures us of His love by the cross of Calvary and in the times of our deepest difficulties. All of the blessings and benefits Paul describes here are those which accompany, and which are a result, of our justification by faith. Scripture: Romans 5:20–21. We feel better and become convinced that we will benefit if we persist. When prosperity comes our way, our hope and affections too often become fixed on the blessings, rather than on the one who blesses, God Himself (see Deuteronomy 8:11-20; 1 Timothy 6:17). These are the truths we should be proclaiming to lost men. His love was poured out in our hearts. It seems that no matter how hard I try to be objective, I see any car as better than it really is, especially a pretty one I would really like to have. Let us consider these benefits of our justification by faith. But establishing that Christians can and should boast in their tribulations takes proof. At the end, there is room for one's own applications. The former seeks to avoid God’s presence; the latter seeks to draw near to Him, in adoration, love, and praise. For now, and in eternity, He is the source of our blessings. There is no “iffyness” about our standing in grace. 5:5 ). Now, it is simply “we.”. If our sin and God’s righteousness caused us to avoid God (as Adam and Eve hid from Him in the Garden of Eden), the death of Christ took away this fear, because justification produced peace with God. (4) The goal of our hope is the praise of God—our boasting in Him. It was the “right time,” when we were “helpless” and “ungodly” (verse 6). “While we were yet sinners,” Christ died for us (verse 8, emphasis mine).

A whole new world commences as a man is justified by faith, and as time passes, more and more of God’s plans and promises are unveiled before the wondering eyes of the believer. 3 And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit129 who was given to us.

Once we have entered into this relationship with God, through faith in Jesus Christ, we discover a whole new world of blessings we had not anticipated, all flowing out of our justification by faith. The “now,” not found in verse 1 but added in verse 9, furthers this same argument. This world’s “hype” always lets us down. As a result, we find God Himself our great reward. But God commendeth his love towards us That is, he hath manifested it, which was before hid in his heart; he has given clear evidence of it, a full proof and demonstration of it; he has so confirmed it by this instance, that there is no room nor reason to doubt of it; he has illustrated and set it off with the greater lustre by this circumstance of it, These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come. What we really are becomes most evident in our response to adversity over the long term. Why by faith only (relate to former section). This is wrong! Justification by faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ brings about even greater blessings described in verses 9-11. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. The love of God and the blessings of justification can only be understood and experienced by those who have first accepted Christ and have experienced justification by faith. Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned; a. It is as though Paul is now saying, almost literally, “But wait, there’s more!” And there is more indeed. God’s righteousness is revealed in His righteous judgment of sin. In such times of trial and testing the love of God, displayed so dramatically on Mount Calvary, is brought to our hearts and minds. It is that peace which marks the end of our hostility toward God and of His hostility toward us (see Ephesians 2). λεῖμμα γέγονεν: a remnant has come to be—this is the fact which has emerged from the general unbelief of Israel.

Paul says much more about this ministry of the Holy Spirit and about God’s love for us in chapter 8. In a certain correspondence with philosopher Bertrand Russell, author Joseph Conrad lamented the following: “I have never been able to find in any man’s book or in any man’s talk anything convincing enough to stand up for a moment against my defeated sense of fatality governing this man-inhabited world…The only remedy for Chinamen [referring to the problems in China] and for the rest of us is the change of hearts.

The gospel of Jesus Christ promises men the forgiveness of their sins and the certainty of a relationship with God that will last through all eternity. Probably most of us have bought something, convinced of its great value, only to discover with time and observation that it was not all we expected it to be. Think of another situation where we might use the word helpless. Chapters 3 and 4 describe the gift of justification by faith, largely in terms of the salvation it provides.
