Read Romans 5:1-5
- Chapter 5 starts with “therefore.” So we have to ask ourselves, “what is the ‘therefore’ there for?” In light of the previous chapters, that we all stand guilty before God, what is he saying in these first verses?
- Define the word justified.
- When you think of a situation of suffering in your life right now (or someone that you are close to), which of the products of suffering well give you the most encouragement?
- Where do you need hope in the midst of a challenging situation or place of suffering?
WEEK 1 MEMORY VERSE:
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
