In A Nutshell - Romans 5

Romans 5: 1-2
By entering through faith into what God has 
always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, 
make us fit for him—we have it all together with God 
because of our Master Jesus. And that's not all: We 
throw open our doors to God and discover at the same 
moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. 
We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we 
might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God's grace 
and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.

Romans 5:3
There's more to come: We continue to shout our 
praise even when we're hemmed in with troubles, 
because we know how troubles can develop passionate 
patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the 
tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever 
God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we're 
never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we 
can't round up enough containers to hold everything God 
generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, 
shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek 
my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then 
will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, 
and will heal their land.

♫ Must Come In At The Door

Romans 5:6
Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. 
He didn't, and doesn't, wait for us to get ready. 
He presented himself for this sacrificial death 
when we were far too weak and rebellious to 
do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if 
we hadn't been so weak, we wouldn't have known 
what to do anyway. We can understand someone 
dying for a person worth dying for, and we can 
understand how someone good and noble could 
inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put his love 
on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial 
death while we were of no use whatever to him.

Matt. 6:33 and 34
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, 
and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for 
tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has 
enough trouble of its own.

Psalm 118:24 ♦ 
This is the day which the LORD hath made; 
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Romans 5:9
Now that we are set right with God by means of this 
sacrificial death, the consummate blood sacrifice, there 
is no longer a question of being at odds with God in any way. 
If, when we were at our worst, we were put on friendly terms 
with God by the sacrificial death of his Son, now that we're at 
our best, just think of how our lives will expand and deepen by 
means of his resurrection life! Now that we have actually received 
this amazing friendship with God, we are no longer content to 
simply say it in plodding prose. We sing and shout our praises 
to God through Jesus, the Messiah!

Romans 5:12
You know the story of how Adam landed us in the dilemma 
we're in— first sin, then death, and no one exempt from either 
sin or death. That sin disturbed relations with God in everything 
and everyone, but the extent of the disturbance was not clear until 
God spelled it out in detail to Moses. So death, this huge abyss separating 
us from God, dominated the landscape from Adam to Moses. Even those 
who didn't sin precisely as Adam did by disobeying a specific command of 
God still had to experience this termination of life, this separation from God. 
But Adam, who got us into this, also points ahead to the One who will get 
us out of it.

Romans 5:12
Here it is in a nutshell: Just as one person did it wrong and got us in
all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and
got us out of it. But more than just getting us out of trouble, he got
us into life! One man said no to God and put many people in the wrong;
one man said yes to God and put many in the right.
All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But
sin didn't, and doesn't, have a chance in competition with the aggressive
forgiveness we call grace. When it's sin versus grace, grace wins hands down.
All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that's the end of it. Grace, because God is 
putting everything together again through the Messiah, invites us into life — a life that goes on and on and on, world without end.
