Questions We Ask Every Time We Read the Bible:

1. What do the verses say?
2. What's the backstory? What's the context?
3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage?

What does it say?
There are four phrases we are going to look at to help us understand the passage:

Justified by faith: Justification comes through Jesus’ blood. In the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf, we can now be in right standing with God. It is the process of reconciliation.

Peace with God: Peace with God is not a weather condition; it is like a location. We can have circumstances that make it feel different, but peace is always the same.

Access into this grace: We all have access into this grace.

Boast in hope: We boast in the hope of the glory of God because of his peace that we have experienced.

What’s the backstory?
Everything that happened through Adam in the book of Genesis is rectified through Jesus. Just like Adam, we are all sinful from birth. We are all made in the image of God, so we are imprinted with his imagery, but we also bring sin into our life. Adam is the way that sin entered the world, and Jesus is the way we experience the abundance of life.

What does it mean?
Peace and hope are always ours to have. Always. Through Jesus Christ, in faith, we get to stand in grace.
What does it mean for me?
Do you practice the peace of God in your life?

What would it look like for you to practice the peace of God this week?

Romans 5:1-2:
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God.
