”Therefore, having been justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” [Romans 5:1NKJ]
Define it—desire it—delight in it—the awesome amazing Grace of God! Grace that leads to the unfolding, ever expanding Glory of God. Listening to this same verse as written in The Message.
“By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us”—think, meditate this morning. God has needed and always wanted to justify all your sin—to make you just-as-if-you’ve-never sinned! God has always wanted you to have a clean sheet—a fresh start—a new beginning. “Our Savior Jesus poured out new life so generously; God’s gift has restored our relationship with him and given us back our lives…” [Titus 3:6 TM]
He has ‘set us right with him. Everyone knows the ache that broken relationships produce—the deep desire for things to ‘be as they used to be—or better than they’ve ever been’. His grace is the power of broken, twisted and bent things. His grace makes us fit for Him. We can enter into His presence boldly because He has done—‘what God has always wanted to do for us’. When we ‘fit’ we know favor—favor that builds the broken places and peace heals the ache.
We have ‘got it together’ because of the Grace poured out at Calvary! When you feel like you’re falling apart, remember—you’ve got it together because God has you.
No more pretense! We can fearlessly open our lives to God. “We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us” We are accepted by the King of the universe. He will never close the door and His grace continually affirms who we are. [Romans 5:2 TM]
We have our own space! “We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise! “ [Romans 5:2 TM
