Results of Justification
5 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, wea]”>[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have obtained accessb]”>[b] to this grace in which we stand; and wec]”>[c] boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but wed]”>[d] also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. 8 But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.
