Faith brings joy
1 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. Adam and Christ contrasted 12  Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 13 (for until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. 15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21 that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Lesson No. 511                “Grace Did Much More Abound"
Romans Chapter 5                                                       04/26/2020
1)      Very interesting- what does Paul say we gained with God through  Jesus, and also by faith we have what??  (Hint: verses 1 and 2)
2)      Now God says, because of this, we need to look at tribulation differently. What does tribulation produce?  (Hint: verses 3 and 4)
3)      But why does 'hope' make us not ashamed?  (Hint: verse 5)
4)      What is remarkable about what Jesus did for us when we were 'ungodly' and  'sinners'?  (Hint: verses 6-8)  Saved from wrath- Verse 9!
5)      It's hard to believe that, when we are apart from God, we were His ...'Enemy'?  (Hint: verse 10)  Does that mean as unbelievers...we were an Anti-Christ?
6)      Doesn't seem fare what God says in verse 11, but it's true- why?
7)      Paul then shows us that sin entered the world and us by Adam, and 'justification' came by one other, who?  (Hint: verses 12-18)
8)      Adam was 'disobedient' to God, and Jesus was 'obedient' to the will of the Father- verse 19.  This is a very useful way of looking at grace!
9)      The purpose of the 'law' is to identify sin.  But where 'sin abounds' (which is everywhere) what abounds  much more?  (Hint: verse 20)
10)   In a practical sense, sin or 'a life in sin' without Jesus 'cleansing us of sin' leads to eternal death.  And  grace by Jesus leads to everlasting life in  heaven!  (verse 21)
