Amen! Good preaching! Salvation is not an intellectual event, it is a life-changing encounter with the living God. With all the emphasis on orthodoxy these days—and we need good doctrine, so don't misread this—we need a reemphasis on orthopraxy—right living. Don't stop reading at Romans 5! Read through 6, 7, and then 8. Death to self via union with Christ in his death and alive in Christ through his resurrection with the result that we live a victorious life via the Spirit, who lives in us.
That's something to get excited about!
