"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character, and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:1–5
In these verses in Romans, John MacArthur, editor ofThe MacArthur Study Bible,writes that “[having been justified] underscores that justification is a one-time legal declaration with continuing results, not an ongoing process”(p. 1700). Justification hasbeendone by faith. MacArthur further clarifies thathopein the New Testament “contains no uncertainty; it speaks of something that is certain, but not yet realized.”
