Romans 5:1-5
1Therefore, since we have been justified through
faith, we have peace with God through our Lord
Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have gained
access by faith into this grace in which we now
stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the
glory of God. 3Not only so, but we also
rejoice in our sufferings, because we know
that suffering produces perseverance;
4perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5And hope does not disappoint us, because
God has poured out his love into our hearts by
the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
Where is our hope?

Many of you lack peace.
Many of you are insecure regarding future.
Many of you suffer in despair.
Many of you question if God’s love is real.
Peace With God
Romans 5:1Therefore, since we have been
justified through faith, we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ…
Colossians 1:19-20 19For God was pleased to
have all his fullness dwell in him, 20and
through him to reconcile to himself all things,
whether things on earth or things in heaven, by
making peace through his blood, shed on the
cross.
We Stand In Grace
Romans 5:1-2 1Therefore, since we have been
justified through faith, we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom
we have gained access by faith into this grace
in which we now stand…
We Rejoice In The Hope of
God’s Glory!
Romans 5:1-2 1Therefore, since we have been
justified through faith, we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom
we have gained access by faith into this grace
in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the
hope of the glory of God…
We Rejoice In Our Suffering!
3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our suffering,
because we know that suffering produces
perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and
character, hope. 5And hope does not
disappoint us, because God has poured out his
love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he
has given us.
Matthew 26:27-29
27Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it
to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you.
28This is my blood of the covenant, which is
poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
29I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the
vine from now on until that day when I drink it
anew with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
Romans 8:15-17
15For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a
slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit
of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that
we are God’s children. 17Now if we are
children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and
co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his
sufferings in order that we may also share in
his glory.
