Having established the principle that justification is by faith alone, Paul now moves to a discussion of the benefits that flow immediately from that great truth. He summarizes the topic in three points: first we are at peace with God, and live in His favor; second, we have ready access to the grace necessary to help us in our time of need; and third, we live in a robust hope of coming glory. Our understanding and conviction of these blessings is deepened by the hardships of life, and together it all proves in practical experience that God indeed loves those whom he has justified, a proof most powerfully demonstrated in the message of the Gospel.
