Romans 5 -- Keep on Reading! Next Chapter is Awesome!

Romans 5 ... Good News!  

Peace and Hope

-- Doesn't this put suffering in perspective?  Thanks, God!

5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we[c] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Here is the essence of what God, through Jesus Christ, did for us:

6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Dear God:  I'm so glad you did not wait for us to clean up our act before you saved us.  You are an awesome God!

See you, my readers in Romans, Chapter 6!
