Romans 5:2 Hope of Glory #262
Last week I shared on the righteousness that Jesus transferred to each of his children. Today I want to share Romans 5:2 which says, “Our faith guarantees us permanent access into this marvelous kindness that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory!”
You have been guaranteed access into a relationship with Christ. The word access, means you have been given entry, but it is up to you to access it. Just as if you have been given keys to access your home, you are the one that has to open the door, the same holds true for your relationship with Jesus.
The access you have been given is by grace. Most people who are Believers understand grace is how they entered into a relationship Jesus, but often times quickly forget that is how the relationship continues. I said this last week but I want to reiterate it again, it’s by grace, not works that you can walk in friendship with the Father.
I love the last half of Romans 5:2 says in the Passion Translation, “what incredible joy bursts forth.” I can’t think of a better way to describe the reality of the gift of grace that has been given to you and I. What a celebration it is as we boast in the hope of the Glory of God!
You have been given access to a relationship with God. Do you understand what that means for you? Have you accessed it? And are you celebrating what a joy it is to experience his glory?
