The following quote is from the chapter I read this morning. It covers Romans 8:28-30, the beloved passage known to many as "The Golden Chain of Salvation."
"...[J]ustified. We are called into union with Jesus Christ, and thereby we find ourselves in a right relationship with God. God judicially credits our sins to Jesus Christ, and credits Christ's righteousness to us. By faith, we receive all that Christ has done for us, propitiating God's wrath against sin by His sufferings on the cross on our behalf. Through an act of substitution, Jesus is reckoned sin and judged accordingly, and we are reckoned "the righteousness of God" in union with Christ and accepted into fellowship with God (cf. 2 Cor. 5:20-21).
Being "justified by faith we have peace with God" (Rom. 5:1)"
 Heb. 2:1
"Romans 8 is a description of the Christian life...from justification to glorification, from trial and suffering to the peace and tranquility of the new heavens and new earth." __ DEREK W. H. THOMAS
