Romans 5:1-8 New International Version (NIV)

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we[c] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. 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.

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.


5:1–21 Grace Abounds

Paul argued that by the impact of this righteous gift believers are given salvation from the wrath of God (5:9). God has reconciled godless and unrighteous enemies to Himself (5:10–11). Thus they “have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (5:1). Paul, by way of a typology, demonstrated that sin and death came to men and women through Adam; righteousness and life, through Jesus Christ (5:11–21). Sin had been intensified by the transgression of the law. Thus greater grace was needed. But where sin abounded, grace abounded all the more (5:20).
