Review last week John 3:16 Most Famous,Gospel in Nutshell, Believe or Parish

Today we are looking at Romans 5 and Paul is talking about Justification

• To be made right with God

Read vs 1&2

1. We have been made right in God’s sight

• Being made right means that at one point all of us were wrong

• That we have gone from a place of Disobedience to Acceptance

• Fall of mankind-- Eve Deceived-- Adam Disobeyed

2. And how have we been made right? It’s through our Faith?

• What is Faith? Faith is believing in something that we have no proof is real.

• And this is one of the stumbling blocks for nonbelievers and for some believers as well

• The World demands proof (Examples, Existence, Investing, Ghosts, ET, Bigfoot)

When we prove something what we doing is to remove all doubt.

3. And we are told that it’s through our Faith that we have Peace with God

• Definition here of peace isn’t the absence of problems,

• It isn’t Peace of mind

We think to have Peace we have to be free from Turmoil, Problems

(Kids, Stress, Job, Relationships, Money Problems)

But The Peace that Paul is talking about

• Comes from us finding harmony with God

Because of what Jesus has done we now have Peace in Our relationship with The Father

• It’s only Jesus Death on the Cross ? Resurrection

• That We are no longer separated from the Father / At odds with Him because of Sin

• Instead we are in Harmony with Him

• Life is Good!!

4. And because of this (Faith, / Being made Right) we have been brought into this place of Undeserved Privilege

• That Privilege means we have Access to the Father

• The word Access means that we can Approach Him / Be Introduced to Him

• God the Father is the One who is being Approached

• And Jesus is the One Introducing us as those who belong to Him

• And because we belong to Him we belong to the Father

And because of that we can Rejoice!!!!

Read vs 3-5

In verse 3 We see the idea of Rejoicing carries over from the Last Section

• In Verses 1&2 we Rejoiced Because we now have Peace, Access, Sharing God’s Glory

• And now we are told that we can Rejoice when we experience problems

Just because we have found Peace with God,

• Doesn’t mean that we have found Peace with those around us

• The conditions of Life, especially for believers in the middle of a hostile society,

• Are not easy or pleasant (Examples)

But since we have the knowledge that we have been accepted by God /

• That we are constantly supplied by His Grace /

• And we have the promise of a future Glory /

• This should be enough to give us Joy / to face these Sufferings

1. And Paul now Refers to this Suffering as a Chain of Events that benefit us as Christians

• How can suffering Benefit us?

• Elsewhere Paul stresses that our sufferings

• The Problems that we go through everyday

• Are an extension of the sufferings experienced by Christ in the days of his flesh,
