Peace with God Through Faith

Romans 5

1 Therefore, a having been justified by faith, 1 we have b peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 c through whom also we have access by faith into this grace d in which we stand, and e rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but f we also glory in tribulations, g knowing that tribulation produces 2 perseverance; 4 h and perseverance, 3 character; and character, hope. 5 i Now hope does not disappoint, j because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

6 For when we were still without strength, 4 in due time k Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But l God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified m by His blood, we shall be saved n from wrath through Him. 10 For o if when we were enemies p we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved q by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also r rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
