Justification by faith leads to the new status and new life of faith summarized in the biblical concept of “peace/shalom.”
We’ll see three points from the text:
- Peace with whom and from what? [“therefore” = Romans 1-4]
- Peace founded in a person and his work, v1b
- Peace’s Product, v2
1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
