Romans 5:11

11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

Joy — the same Greek word is translated as “rejoice” in verse 2 and “glory” in verse 3.

The atonement is Christ’s sacrifice. We don’t receive that, but we do receive the results — reconciliation.

Back to the progression I mentioned a few posts ago:

vs. 6without strength — God gives us help and power

vs. 8 —  yet sinners — God gives us forgiveness

vs. 10enemies — God gives us reconciliation
