Romans 5:1-7
Rom 5:1 (KJV)
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Paul sums up the preceding chapter by stating that Faith, which is the Free Grace of God, allows us to have peace with God. Before a person is saved, they are at enmity with God.
(Gen 3:15 KJV) And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. The unsaved person is one who is hated by God because He calls them workers of iniquity. (Psa 5:5 KJV) The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. The workers of iniquity are every unsaved person in the world. There is no such concept in Scripture that God loves the sinner and hates the sin. God loves only His redeemed children. The rest are enemies of God because of their unregenerate life. It is only through the Lord Jesus Christ does anyone have a standing with God. Paul sums up the previous chapter that the law can never bring us to salvation, instead it shows us only that we are in need of salvation through a Savior. When a person becomes saved, the war with God is over and they are now adopted into the kingdom of God. (Eph 1:5 KJV) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  Those who reject the Lord Jesus Christ are rejecting the only way that God has given for a person to obtain salvation, there is no other.

Rom 5:2 (KJV)
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way that we have access to God. The word “access” carries with it the meaning of “bringing in.” Only through Christ can one be reconciled unto God the Father. Since we are in Christ, we stand which carries with it the meaning “being firm or established.” Christ establishes our position with God the Father and keeps us firm in His hand, which also means we will never be lost. The fact that the believer is established in Christ, means that we glory in the hope of the resurrection of our bodies unto eternal life in our new resurrected bodies.
(Titus 2:13 KJV) Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; No matter what our physical predicament is on earth, as a child of God, I can rejoice knowing that the troubles I suffer are only for a short season in comparison to eternity with the Lord. (2 Cor 4:17 KJV) For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

Rom 5:3 (KJV)
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

Not only do we glory in the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ but the fact that we face many trials and tribulations here on earth, we may glory in them since we may face every obstacle on earth with the power of God dwelling in us. The majority of people in the world, when faced with a dilemma, will tend to curse God for their situation. The believer may tend to murmur about their circumstances not accepting that tribulation in their life is God’s perfect plan for their life. In the life of a Christian, who truly trusts Christ all the way, will triumph over any tribulation that comes into their life. Instead of murmuring against God they accept the situation that God has placed them in which results in a humble spirit and builds patience into their life. The word “patience” carries with it the meaning of “endurance.” Endurance of tribulation creates a powerful believer.

Rom 5:4 (KJV)
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

The endurance which build up in the believer’s life leads to experience. The word “experience” carries with it the meaning of “proof” or “approved integrity.” The fact that a believer will endure the trials in confidence that God is in control shows that they possess true salvation because the evidence of their faith is trust in God for their situation and the proof of that faith is their trust. Since they have been approved by the fact of their trust in God for they situation, they now possess hope in God for the future of their situation, knowing that at some appointed time in their life, their situation will end, either by God’s intervention on earth or by their home going. Those who truly trust the Lord will be satisfied with either.

Rom 5:5 (KJV)
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

The world may laugh at us by saying that we hope in a myth, but they are on the outside and their opinions do not count when it comes to the things of the Lord. The believer will never suffer shame by trusting wholly in the Lord for they will see the culmination of their hope. The love of God has been “shed abroad” which carries the meaning of “being poured out.” Our hearts are indwelled by the Holy Spirit and because He indwells us, He indwells us with hope. This is why we will never be ashamed, even though the world may laugh or misunderstand, our responsibility to God is not based on how the world sees us. The world lives by sight, but we live by faith, until the time when the faith shall become sight. Those who desire to live by the law will never experience the indwelling of the Holy Spirit because He is only given to those who are in Christ. He is the seal of our salvation.
(Eph 4:30 KJV) And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Rom 5:6 (KJV)
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Now Paul addresses the believers because he uses the word “we.” There was a time that every believer was without strength or helpless would be a good understanding also. That time would be before we became saved. We were helpless to do anything to bring about our own salvation and that means, without God electing us to salvation, we would have died in our sins and went to Hell. However, in the perfect timing of God, Christ came to earth and died for the ungodly, which describes the believers before salvation.
(Gal 4:4 KJV) But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

Rom 5:7 (KJV)
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

Paul now makes a comparison between the mindset of the world and the mindset of Christ. A righteous man is one who is just or good and maybe for this type of man someone would be willing to lay down their life for them. Paul then mentions that perhaps for a good man which is one who is kind or generous might a person die for. Throughout history there have been some that others have been willing to sacrifice their lives for but the great question is who would be willing to die for their enemy who hates them with a passion?
