1. Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2. By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4. And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5. And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us: 6. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Let talk about our journey into God through our being justified out of faith has not yet been, completed. See now Paul tells us that grace is for our standing and peace is for our walk with God. Brethren the very faith that justifies us and cuts off the flesh with its natural energy and effort also gives us access into God’s grace. If we remain in the flesh with its natural effort, we will neither know nor enjoy the grace of God. Now if we live by faith, we will enter into the full enjoyment of God’s grace. In Romans 3;28, Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. We are not merely under God’s blessing we are in his grace, faith first gives us access into grace, then a solid standing in grace. See in Romans 3:24, Bring justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Our hope is that we will be brought into the glory of God, that is into his expression. Now brethren this will be fully realized in the coming millennial kingdom where Christ will be revealed as our glory. Let’s look at Romans 8:28.” And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Now the tribulations are part of the all things, in that God causes every thing to work together for good that we might be sanctified, transformed, and conformed to the image of his, who has entered into glory. now in Romans 4:14,16, Brethren knowing that he which raised up the Lord Je’sus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. 16. For which cause we faint not: but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. Now the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace in believing that we may have abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God in him, for God has poured out his love in our hearts with the Holy Spirit, who has given to us, the motivating power within us that we may be more than conquer in all our tribulation, therefore when we endure any kind of tribulations we are not put to shame. Now for when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Brethren for the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of man, who hold the truth in unrighteousness now when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more being reconciled led, we shall be saved by his life. In Romans 6:6, Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For redemption, justification, and reconciliation and for the purpose of bringing us into union with Christ so that he can save us in his life unto glorification. See now since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead, for as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. In John 11:25, Je’sus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
To God Be The Glory
