Faith Triumphs in Trouble

Therefore, (A)having been justified by faith, [a]we have (B)peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, (C)through whom also we have access by faith into this grace (D)in which we stand, and (E)rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but (F)we also glory in tribulations, (G)knowing that tribulation produces [b]perseverance; (H)and perseverance, [c]character; and character, hope. (I)Now hope does not disappoint, (J)because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Christ in Our Place

For when we were still without strength, [d]in due time (K)Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But (L)God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified (M)by His blood, we shall be saved (N)from wrath through Him. 10 For (O)if when we were enemies (P)we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved (Q)by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also (R)rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
