Another week upon me means another new truth to embrace!
Truth for this week: I am justified
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. (Rom.5:1-2a)
The Message puts it this way: By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us – set us right with him, make us fit for him – we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: we throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us.
It is nothing that we have done. Nothing that we will ever do. It has been done for us!
Jesus, thank you. It is only because of you that we have access to God. Thank you that because of your willingness, we have been set right with God. Please help this to sink deep into our hearts this week. Amen
