Romans 5:6-11

The Results of Justification

1) Peace with God: Romans 5:1

Ephesians 2:14; Matthew 10:32; 1 Timothy 2:5; 1 John 2: 1-2

2) Access to God (a way in): Romans 5:2a

John 10:9; John 14:6; 1 Corinthians 15:1; Ephesians 1:6; Colossians 3:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21

3) “… and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:2b

Colossians 1:20

4) “And not only so, but we glory in tribulation also:

(Christian character) – Romans 5:3-4

5) “… because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts…” Romans 5:5-8

(God’s love within) 1 John 3:14-19

6) Salvation from future wrath: Romans 5:9-10

7) “… the Holy Spirit… is given unto us.” Romans 8:9

Romans 8:16; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18; 1 Corinthians 6:19

8) “We also joy in God.” Colossians 3:3

9) Reconciliation with God: Romans 5:11

Bible Verse Notes:

1-11 – For Paul, justification is not sterile doctrine, but a source of present blessing in one’s life.

2 – The Christian has confidence that all of God’s purposes (glory) will be accomplished.

3-5 – Suffering produces good results in the believer’s life. Patience means endurance, and maketh not ashamed means does not disappoint or deceive.

6-8 – The extent of God’s love is shown in the fact that Christ died for men in whom there was nothing that evoked that love. Without strength means morally weak; commendeth means shows or proves.

9 – Much more; Notice the repetition of this emphasis in verses 10, 15, 17, and 20. Paul is teaching the vicarious, sacrificial significance of Christ’s death.

10 – Reconciliation involves a changed relationship because our trespasses are not counted against us (2 Corinthians 5:19). This is all with God’s grace. we shall be saved by his life – Christ’s present resurrection in ministry in heaven keeps us saved (Hebrews 7:25)

11 – Atonement means the reconciliation, or change. God changes us from enemies to family. The word translated atonement is exclusively an Old Testament word, though theologically it has come to stand for the total significance of Christ’s death.

I asked what atonement meant and loved the answer Trish gave. You are reconciled and become one with God. To make it easy to remember separate the word atonement to become at one.
