Romans 5:1-11
Rev. Mark Dooley

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

Looking under God’s Christmas tree, THE CROSS. We find precious gifts under the tree.

    1. JUSTIFICATION: God declaring us righteous in His sight. Just as if I had never sinned. We are justified in his sight. The blood that Jesus shed on the cross justified us. He accepts us on the condition that our faith is on the blood that Jesus shed for us on the cross
    2. PEACE: Peace is through our maker, especially those who trust in our Maker. Do not trust in the peace that the world gives because that is not peace. Our focus should not be on this troubled world, our focus should be on our Maker, Jesus Christ. That will bring true peace.
    3. ACCESS: Access to God by faith in his son Jesus.
    4. HOPE:
    5. TRIUMPH: Paul says he will glory in trouble because it provides a opportunity to trust God, to draw us to God and help us see that God will triumph and bring us through.
    6. DELIVERANCE: We are saved (delivered) from God’s wrath.
    7. RECONCILIATION: We are now reconciled with Christ, brought back to a relationship with Christ. We could never reconcile our debt to God, but Jesus Christ paid our entire debt, for everyone, out of a pure gift of love.
