31 A Beneficial Effect of Salvation

Romans 5 v 11

6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will scarcely die for a righteous person –though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die– but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we have now been justified by His blood, much more shall we be saved by Him from the wrath of God.
10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by His life. 11More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Why we do fail to grasp the truth of Justification by Faith alone:

1. We fail to meditate on the glory of God – His goodness and greatness.

2. We find little things here and there that impress our minds more than the glory of God.

3. We do not reason and argue from Scripture. Wise people learn from what God says.
