Today’s Bible reading is 1 Chronicles 3 and Romans 5.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (Rom 5:1-2)
Justified. Access. Stand. Rejoice. Hope.
Five words from the first two verses of Romans 5 that encapsulate who we are as disciples of Jesus. Five words worth jotting down on a sticky note and reflecting on throughout this week.
Justified. Since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Access. Through Jesus we have obtained access into grace.
Stand. In this grace we stand.
Rejoice. Once blind, now we see. Once lost and dead, we have been found and made alive.
Hope. We rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Five God-provided words that can serve as an anchor for your soul this week.
