Romans 5:3 Not Only So

Romans 5:3 (KJV)
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And not only so…

  • Not only are we justified
  • Not only do we have peace with God
  • Not only may we rejoice hope of the glory of God

We can rejoice in tribulations because we know:

  • Tribulation worketh patience
  • Patience works experience 
  • Experience works hope and that
  • Hopes makes us unashamed 

  • Not ashamed of the gospel[1]
  • Not ashamed of Christs death
  • Not ashamed of the coming wrath of God

The result of faith is justification. The consequences of justification are more far-reaching than being forgiven. 


[1] Romans 1:16 (KJV)
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
