Peace and Joy

1 Therefore, since we have been justified1 through faith,2 wea have peace3 with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,4 2 through whom we have gained access5 by faith into this grace in which we now stand.6 And web rejoice in the hope7 of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but wec also rejoice in our sufferings,8 because we know that suffering produces perseverance;9 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope10 does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love11 into our hearts by the Holy Spirit,12 whom he has given us. 6 You see, at just the right time,13 when we were still powerless,14 Christ died for the ungodly.15 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.16 9 Since we have now been justified17 by his blood,18 how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath19 through him!
