Lessons Worth Re-Learning

This is my journey that the LORD Jesus Christ has taken me on in my life. So don't be surprised, this is a Christian site written by a Christian. Most of us have lived our Christian lives such that if we bloomed where we were planted, we'd be mushrooms in a cave! If you would like to subscribe to this blog, please send me an e-mail.

I am just like everyone else: I make it one day at a time with a little bit of humor. The Word of God is a fire in my heart that burns all the way down to my bones and I cannot hold it back. Jeremiah 20:9

Peace with God Through Faith

Romans 5  (ESV)

1. Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with GOD through our LORD Jesus Christ.

2. Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand and we rejoice in hope of the glory of GOD.

3. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,

4. and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,

5. and hope does not put us to shame, because GOD's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

6. For while we were still weak, at the right time, Christ died for the ungodly.

7. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—

8. but GOD shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

9. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by His blood, much more shall we be saved by Him from the wrath of GOD.

10. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to GOD by the death of His Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by His life.

11. More than that, we also rejoice in GOD through our LORD Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
