Having shown that all have sinned and that there cannot be any salvation for the sinner outside of the work of Christ, Paul took Abraham as a great example of this principle of justification by faith alone. Now he begins to spell out some of the blessings that attend those who are justified. We look at three of these from this passage:

  • Peace with God
  • The hope of glory
  • The knowledge that our trials work for our good by God’s grace to strengthen in us that hope

We again see the grace and glory of our God in dealing with us so wonderfully and with our highest good always in mind.
