Read: Romans 5:6-11
The chapter begins by describing some of the benefits we receive when we put our complete faith in God. As we put our faith in God we should have peace. Our sufferings are temporary. God has declared and proved his love for us.
Adam brought sin and death to the world but Jesus Christ brought hope as he died for our sins, and with God’s grace all those who believe are offered the gift of grace.
Paul acknowledges that as we hope and trust in God, we will never be disappointed or put to shame. Christ died for us while we were weak. Salvation is free, and nothing about who we are earned us that right. Christ dying for us, really shows God’s love for us. Christ died to save us from our sins.
God chose the right time for Christ to be born, to live amongst us, died, and was resurrected. During this period, let us ponder at God’s amazing grace and love and let us strive to love each other, citizens of the world. Let us strengthen our faith and our hope in God, no matter what we are going through, knowing that our sufferings are indeed temporary.
