Faith Triumphs in Trouble.png

  1. Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

  2. through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

  3. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;

  4. and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

  5. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

  6. For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

  7. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.

  8. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

  9. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

  10. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

  11. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

  12. Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned

  13. (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

  14. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.

  15. But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.

  16. And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification.

  17. For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

  18. Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.

  19. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

  20. Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

  21. so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The apostle Paul is a teacher of teaching, the faith that was in the midst of all the tribulations suffered because of his lord, led him to be strong and to triumph.
Dear brothers, the whole Christian life is the fruit of the grace of God, in which we stand firm: his favor and provision in Christ that we do not deserve.
The glory of God is an external manifestation of his inner essence, at the return of the Lord that glory will be revealed in all its fullness, and the believers rejoice at the prospect of contemplating him as he is and sharing his glory and the test, hope: when the Christian suffers difficulties, the hope grows to receive what God has promised.

It is incredible when you begin to read this chapter and you get that we entered into peace with God justified by faith in Jesus Christ, paying all the debt we had and reconciling us with God.

Human beings experienced death for being sinners by action as well as by nature and transgressors of the law of conscience that they have written in their hearts
