1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. When I read this passage of Scripture I observe the following: a/ when we call upon the name of Jesus for salvation we are justified [ made righteous before God ]. b/ We have peace with God. [ a peace that is beyond all understanding ]. c/ We have access into the presence of God’s amazing grace! d/ We can rejoice in our hope of God’s Glory! e/ We accept our troubles knowing they produce patience! f/ This patience produces experience. g/ experience produces hope. We have the love of God in our hearts through His Holy Spirit!
