Fall 2017 Bible Study: Romans Chapter 5

Freedom From Wrath – Results of Justification

Words to Ponder:

  • Creation: The fact of being created. Something that is or has been created. An original product of the mind, especially an imaginative artistic work. The Creation, the original bringing into existence of the universe by God.
  • Wrath: Great anger that expresses itself in a desire to punish someone. Intense anger (Usually on an epic scale). “So the angle swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.” Rev. 14:19
  • Condemnation: To express an adverse judgement on; the act of declaring something awful or evil, unspeakable. A final judgement of guilt and the punishment that is imposed.
  • Salvation: Saving someone from harm or a life-threatening situation. Preserving from danger and destruction. Deliverance from the power and effects of sin.
  • Peace: State of tranquility or quiet. Freedom from disquieting or oppressive thought or emotions. Tranquility and harmony. Shalom: The Peace of the Lord.

Discussion and Reflection:

  1. Name some benefits we enjoy as the result of justification.
  2. How did God demonstrate His love for us?
  3. What did Jesus do about our alienation from God?
  4. Explain the differences between spiritual death and physical death.
  5. What comparisons and differences can be made between Adam and Christ?

Memory Verse:

“For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being: for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ.”

1 Corinthians 15:21-22
