Homiletics - Romans 5

Contents (not sentence, direct verbiage from Scripture):  Where?                                                                Who?

Therefore, since we justified thru faith, we have peace w/God thru Christ; thru whom we gained access by faith into grace, we boast in hope of glory of God; we also glory in sufferings, produces perseverance ® character ® hope; hope not put us to shame, bec God’s love poured into our hearts thru H.S. given to us.
@ just right time, while we powerless, Christ died for ungodly; very rarely anyone die for righteous person, tho for good person someone might die; God demos his love for us: while we sinners Christ died for us.
Since we now justified by His blood, we save from God’s wrath thru Him; if while we enemies, we reconciled to him thru death of Son, how much more we saved thru His life; We also boast in God thru Christ thru whom we recd reconciliation.
Therefore, just as sin entered world thru 1 man & death thru sin, death came to all ppl bec all sinned; sin was in world before law given, sin not charged against anyone’s acct where there is no law.
Nevertheless, death reigned from time of Adam to Moses even over those who did not sin by breaking cmd, as did Adam, who is pattern of one to come.
Gift not like trespass, if many died by trespass of 1 man, how much more did God’s grace/gift came by grace of 1 man (Jesus) overflow to many.
Nor can gift be compared w/result of 1 man’s sin: judgment followed 1 sin, brought condemnation, gift followed many trespasses & brought justification
If by trespass of 1 man, death reigned thru that man, how much more will those who receive God’s provision of grace reign in life thru Jesus.
Just as 1 trespass resulted in condemnation for all, 1 righteous act resulted in justification & life for all ppl; thru disobedience of 1, many made sinners so thru obedience of 1, many will be made righteous.
Law brought so trespass might increase, where sin increased, grace increased; just as sin reigned in death, so grace might reign thru righteousness to bring eternal life thru Jesus.
