During our annual mission emphasis on Sunday we looked at Romans 5:1-11 where Paul highlights the benefits that come along with justification by faith in the work of Christ. He also demonstrates our response to those amazing benefits by pointing to the confidence and joy we find in what God has given us. This confidence sets us on a trajectory toward neighbors and nations as we boast in what God has accomplished in Christ.
