Intro – the bible tells us that when we trust Jesus we are justified.(Gal.3:6, Rom.4:5) Our text today expands on what that means.

 

 

 

I.  We have peace.  5:1, 8-10

 

A. It means we are not at war with God. 1Thess.5:9

 

1. We are not rebelling against Him like Adam and Eve.  Ex.23:20-21 (10)

 

2. Faith restores our relationship. James 2:23, Matt.6:10, Gal.2:20

 

B. Faith means being calm and at rest in the midst of turmoil.

 

1. A peace only Jesus can give. Jn.14:27, Jn.16:33

 

2. A peace the world cannot understand. Phil.4:7, Rom.8:28

 

3. A peace that comes from knowing you’re saved. Col.1:20, 1Jn.1:7, 1Thess.5:23

 

 

 

II. We experience God’s grace 5:2, 6-7

 

A. The acronym God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense.

 

1. Punishment vs salvation. Heb.9:28, 1Pet.2:24

 

2. Death vs life. Rom.6:23, Jn.11:25-26, 2Cor.5:8, 1Jn.3:14, Jn.5:24

 

3. Sin vs righteousness. 2Cor.5:21

 

B. We are complete in Christ and have been empowered to have victory over sin.Col.2:10, Rom.7:24-25

 

 

 

III. We have hope 5:2, 5, 11

 

A. The bible speaks of 2 kinds of hope, a doubt based hope and an assurance based hope.

 

B. We do not hope (doubt) we are saved, we know we are. 1Jn.5:12-13

 

C. Because we know we are saved we have hope (assurance) for the future. Heb.11:1, Heb.6:17-19

 

 

Con. When you come to Jesus for forgiveness you can be assured you have eternal life.
