Reconciliation with God through Faith in Christ

1 Therefore, [because we]a have been declared righteous by faith, we haveb peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have [obtained] access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only [this], but we also boast in our afflictions, [because we]c know that affliction produces patient endurance, 4 and patient endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 6 For [while]d we were still helpless, yet at the proper time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For only rarely will someone die on behalf of a righteous person (for on behalf of a good person possibly someone might even dare to die), 8 but God demonstrates his own love for us, [in] that [while]e we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Therefore, by much more, [because we]f have been declared righteous now by his blood, we will be saved through him from the wrath. 10 For if, [while we]g were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, by much more, having been reconciled, we will be saved by his life. 11 And not only [this], but also [we are] boasting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
