Faith Brings Joy
1Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. 3We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that
they help us develop endurance. 4And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. 6When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 9And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. 10For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.11So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

“Study of Romans, Chapter 5 Faith Brings Joy”
“Joy, the feeling of great pleasure and happiness; a feeling of delight, bliss, jubilation, gladness, rejoicing, triumph, exhilaration, and exuberance… Through our faith in God, we receive great joy. Romans 5:1-2 [says] “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God” In Chapter 4, Paul proved that circumcision and following the law was nothing more than an outward profession of a Jew’s faith in God, but was not necessary for salvation as was shown in Abraham’s life. Paul begins to outline the benefits of our justification, beginning with peace. This does not necessarily mean that this is a feeling, but indicates that we have been reconciled with God. We no longer have sin in our life that blocks a personal relationship with God. This peace is a direct result of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins…” More Commentary @ http://livingthescripture.com/2014/02/09/study-romans-chapter-5-faith-brings-joy/ And for Romans Chapter 4 – Justified by Faith @ http://livingthescripture.com/2014/02/05/study-romans-chapter-4-justification-faith-illustrated/
