Bible Study on Romans: The Permanence of Justification: Romans 5:1-2

Summary: The removal of our sins through justification by faith in Christ results in our reconciliation with God who is holy, which in turn is the foundation for our peace with God.

1. A. Read Romans 4:18-5:1. Do you observe any cause and effect statements?

B. Why does Rom. 5:1 begin with the word, “Therefore”? Explain what “with God” is based on and why. (Rom. 4:25)

C. Do you really enjoy your standing of peace with God? Why or why not?

2. A. According to Rom. 5:2, what is the Believer standing in, and who gets the glory?

B. It has been said, “We have something that nothing in this life can rob from us: Peace with God.” How would you defend this statement? (Rom. 5:10; 2 Cor. 5:17-18; Col. 1:13-22).

C. What should be our response? (Col. 1:3, 10-13; John 15:4-5).

3. A. To what are Believers called, according to Paul in Col. 3:15.

B. It has been said, “Peace with God is the foundation for peace with others.” Can you defend this statement? (John 13:34; I John 4:7; 2 Cor. 5:18-20; Col.3:12-15).

C. What are some of the ways that you are a peace maker?

4. A. What kinds of peace are contrasted in John 14:27?

B. How does a Christian enjoy that overcoming peace of God, in spite of hardships and trials? (Phil. 4:6-8; Ps. 16:7-11; Prov. 3:5-6).

C. Do you have that tranquility of heart that God intends you to have?
