The 2 Work Together – Part 2

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

“The 2 Work Together – Part 2”

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

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

——–

Further Thought:  Yesterday we spoke about Grace [God’s Part] and Faith [Our Part] and the two working together.  Let’s understand that our faith doesn’t move God. God has already moved by grace. Our faith [trust, confidence in God] reaches out and takes (appropriates) what God’s grace has already provided.  If you didn’t read yesterday’s nugget, let me encourage you to do so.

2 Corinthians 5:21 reminds us that as a result of Jesus’ sacrifice for us, we have been made right with God.  So, there’s nothing you or I can do to change this.  Today’s passage also reminds us that based on our trust in Jesus, we have been justified [declared right] with God.  Not only that but now we have peace with God and access [admission] into His grace.

Let’s keep in mind this is only the beginning.  As we get to know God according to 2 Peter 1:3-4, we continue to gain more access into His grace and how to take advantage of all our rights and privileges as citizens of the Kingdom of God. Isn’t this exciting?

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