You Now Have Access

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“You Now Have Access”

Romans 5:1-2 New King James Version (NKJV)

1 Therefore, having been justified [declared righteous] by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

————-
Further Thought:  Today’s passage tells us that we not only have been declared right with God by our faith [truth & confidence in Him], but we also have peace with Him [He’s not mad at you. He loves you and wants you to walk/live in his best] because of our decision to put our faith [truth and confidence] in His Son.  Based on that decision, we “Now” have access [admission] into the God of grace [all He’s made available in His Word].  Remember Jesus said in Matthew 7:11 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”

This morning, let me encourage you to take a few minutes to discover in God’s Word what He has provided by grace.  Let’s recognize that faith is our part, and grace is God’s part.  He’s finished his part of the deal and is waiting for us to acknowledge what grace has provided.  He’s waiting on us to believe itreceive it, and rest in it [being fully persuaded that whatever we require is done [provided]]. 

Have a great day and keep chewing on God’s Word.
