Romans 5:1-11

5:1 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with Godthrough our Lord Jesus Christ,
5:2 through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast inour hope of sharing the glory of God.
5:3 And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that sufferingproduces
5:4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,
5:5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our heartsthrough the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
5:6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
5:7 Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person--though perhaps for a goodperson
someone might actually dare to die.
5:8 But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.
5:9 Much more surely then, now that we have been justified by his blood, will we be savedthrough him from the wrath of God.
5:10 For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son,much more surely, having been reconciled, will we be saved by his life.
5:11But more than that, we even boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whomwe have now received reconciliation.
