New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of highest privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God's glory. 2 through 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.
3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us -- they help us learn to endure. 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4 And endurance develops strength of character in us, and character strengthens our confident expectation of salvation. 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 And this expectation will not disappoint us. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
7 Now, no one is likely to die for a good person, though someone might be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.
8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
