The Gospel of Jesus:
For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to
God through the death of His Son, much more, having
been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
As we learned earlier in this lesson, we were
separated from God by our sins (see Isaiah 59:1-2).
This is why we are described as "enemies" of
God here in the book of Romans. However, even
though we had sinned against God and were His
enemies...God sent His son to die for us.
According to Romans 5:10, while we were enemies
of God...we were reconciled back to God by ________
and we shall be saved by His ________.
