"It Isn't Often"

Scripture-Romans 5:1-8 The Common English Bible

1 Therefore, since we have been made righteous through his faithfulness combined with our faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

2 We have access by faith into this grace in which we stand through him, and we boast in the hope of God's glory. 

3 But not only that! We even take pride in our problems, because we know that trouble produces endurance, 4 endurance produces character, and character produces hope. 

5 This hope doesn't put us to shame, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. 

6 While we were still weak, at the right moment, Christ died for ungodly people. 

7 It isn't often that someone will die for a righteous person, though maybe someone might dare to die for a good person. 

8 But God shows his love for us, because while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
