justified by grace through faith

Hi friends,

Paul talks here about justification by faith. When Paul says we’re justified by faith, it means even though we are sinners, God declares us innocent because of Christ’s faithfulness. Since we have been declared innocent, we can be free from our guilt and shame to live fearless lives of faith and love.

God bless,

Romans 5:1-8

Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.

3And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. 8But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.
