Romans 5:2 NLT – Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
Because we have faith in Christ we have two things we can hold on to…
- We stand in a place of undeserved privilege in God’s eyes
- We can look forward to seeing and sharing in God’s glory
Because we are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) we have a new standing. We are forgiven and set free from sin (1 John 1:9). We have eternal life (John 3:16). We are co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).
I love that because of Christ’s death for our sin and because we have accepted Him as our Lord and Saviour, we HAVE a new standing with God. And we WILL share in His glory.
Let us stand with hope today and look forward to the day when we will see God face to face and share in His glory.
Be blessed today,
