Romans 5:1-11

and some text for a handout:

Romans 5vv1-11 (page 1132)

Since we have been justified through faith in Jesus (vv1, 9) …

grace (v2)

3 Things the Christian Believer

Can & Should Rejoice In:

(1)  in the hope of the glory of God (v2)


(a) God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit (v5)

(b) Christ died for us sinners (vv6-8)

(c) God has forgiven us and made us his friends and will certainly save us (vv9-11)

(2) in suffering (vv3-4)


suffering à perseverance à character à hope

(3) in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have received reconciliation (v11)
