The Scriptures —Study 9 — Romans 5:1-11

Study 9 From The Book of Romans Is: Romans 5:1-11

1.      Verses 1, 2, 9-11. What blessings does justification bring with it? List the things which are now ours to enjoy. Note how much is covered by these statements. What ought such awareness to make us do?

2.      Someone, however, may say: ‘But what of the sufferings attending the Christian life? Do not detract from its blessedness?’ What is Paul’s answer to this? See verses 3-5.  What is the value of suffering, and how may we be sure that our hopes are not mere wishful thinking?

3.      Verses 5-8. By what evidence may we be doubly sure that God loves us? Notice the importance of having at least two witnesses.  Cf. Dt. 19:15; 2 Cor. 13:1. In what ways are the witnesses mentioned here different and complementary?
