Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ; through whom we also have our access by faith into this grace in which we stand. We rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (WEB)
All heaven has declared us justified by our faith in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ. Through the life of our elder brother Jesus, we now have peace with God and free access into the throne room of grace anytime, night or day.
My prayer today is that we would not take for granted the amazing gift that has been freely given to us. It is by grace that we are saved and not by our own works. It is the very gift of God to us so that not one of us could boast in our self effort.
May the overwhelming, eternal revelation of the goodness of our Father and the immeasurable sacrifice of His Son be more real to us today than ever before. Because of the once and for all sacrifice of the Lamb of God, we now have peace with God and free access into the grace in which we now stand. May joy fill our hearts as we continue to place our hope in the everlasting mercy shown to us by Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
4 But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus; 8 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, that no one would boast.
