therefore since we have been justified through faith, we 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 rejoice in the hope of the glory of God, not only so but we also rejoice in our sufferings because we know that suffering produces perseverance and perseverance character and character hope and hope does not disappoint us because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit whom he has given us. you see at just the right time when we were still powerless, Christ dies for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die but God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ dies for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from Gods wrath through him! For if when we were gods enemies were were reconciled to him through the death of his Son. How much more having been reconciled shall we be saved through his life. not only is this so but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have now received reconciliation.
