Romans 5:1-11 – Paul shares that since God has restored our relationship with himself, we can have joy and hope now. Paul begins a list of the many benefits of our justification through Christ in this passage. Contemplation on these benefits, which include a restored relationship with God, can only lead to rejoicing in our hearts – even amidst trying circumstances. The joy and hope that Paul says we have aren’t things we need to muster up on our own strength. Rejoicing rather is the result of focusing on what we have in Christ.
