Bible study on Romans – Chapter 5
Dear brothers and sisters,
In this bible study on the 5th chapter on the book of Romans we will go through the following parts:
- Peace and hope
- Death through Adam, life through Christ
Peace and hope
This chapter begins with one of the most important lessons of the Bible: it is through faith that we are justified. And therefore we are also not justified by anything else. And it is only through Jesus Christ that we have peace. So, if you seek peace in your life, than know it is only to be received by accepting Jesus Christ as your savior.
Paul even tells us that we should glorify in our suffering, as it builds/brings perserverance, character, and character will bring hope. And don’t think you will be ashamed by having hope, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit!
Furhtermore, know that God shows us so much love for us, because although we were sinners Jesus Christ died for us. Never take this mildly, because dying (in an earthly body), and the way that He had do die, must have been so horrible to comprehend. So never take Jesus Christs dying for our sins lightly!
Death through Adam, life through Christ
Death entered into the world by one man (Adam), and death through sin, and in that way death came to all people, because all sinned! This means that no matter who you are, you have also sinned! So everyone needs Jesus Christ and faith to come before God!
But luckily we have not despair, because although sin and death came to us through one man, it was by one man, Jesus Christ, that it was by God’s grace came over all of us! And this gift is much bigger than sin! So have full faith in Jesus Christ!
