Faith Triumphs in Trouble


1 Therefore, ahaving been justified by faith,
1we have bpeace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 athrough whom also we have access by faith into this grace bin which we stand, and crejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only that, but awe also glory in tribulations, bknowing that tribulation produces 1perseverance;
4 aand perseverance, 1character; and character, hope.
5 aNow hope does not disappoint, bbecause the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Christ in Our Place

6 For when we were still without strength, 1in due time aChrist died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
8 But aGod demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, having now been justified aby His blood, we shall be saved bfrom wrath through Him.
10 For aif when we were enemies bwe were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved cby His life.
11 And not only that, but we also arejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

Death in Adam, Life in Christ

12 Therefore, just as athrough one man sin entered the world, and bdeath through sin, and thus death

page 993

spread to all men, because all sinned—
13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but asin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, awho is a type of Him who was to come.
15 But the free gift is not like the 1offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded ato many.
16 And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many 1offenses resulted in justification.
17 For if by the one man’s 1offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore, as through 1one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through aone2 Man’s righteous act the free gift came bto all men, resulting in justification of life.
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by aone Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.
20 Moreover athe law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace babounded much more,
21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Dead to Sin, Alive to God


1 What shall we say then? aShall we continue in sin that grace may abound?
2 Certainly not! How shall we who adied to sin live any longer in it?
3 Or do you not know that aas many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus bwere baptized into His death?
4 Therefore we were aburied with Him through baptism into death, that bjust as Christ was raised from the dead by cthe glory of the Father, deven so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 aFor if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,
6 knowing this, that aour old man was crucified with Him, that bthe body of sin might be 1done away

with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
7 For ahe who has died has been 1freed from sin.
8 Now aif we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
9 knowing that aChrist, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.
10 For the death that He died, aHe died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, bHe lives to God.
11 Likewise you also, 1reckon yourselves to be adead indeed to sin, but balive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
12 aTherefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
13 And do not present your amembers as 1instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but bpresent yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as 1instruments of righteousness to God.
14 For asin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

From Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God

15 What then? Shall we sin abecause we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!
16 Do you not know that ato whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?
17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart athat form of doctrine to which you were 1delivered.
18 And ahaving been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness 1for holiness.
20 For when you were aslaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
21 aWhat fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For bthe end of those things is death.
22 But now ahaving been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit 1to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.
23 For athe wages of sin is death, but bthe 1gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
