GOD'S WORD Translation

New International Version

Romans 5:1-8

GW 1 Now that we have God's approval by faith, we have peace with God because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done. NIV 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, GW 2 Through Christ we can approach God and stand in his favor. So we brag because of our confidence that we will receive glory from God. NIV 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. GW 3 But that's not all. We also brag when we are suffering. We know that suffering creates endurance, NIV 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; GW 4 endurance creates character, and character creates confidence. NIV 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. GW 5 We're not ashamed to have this confidence, because God's love has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. NIV 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. GW 6 Look at it this way: At the right time, while we were still helpless, Christ died for ungodly people. NIV 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. GW 7 Finding someone who would die for a godly person is rare. Maybe someone would have the courage to die for a good person. NIV 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. GW 8 Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God's love for us. NIV 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
