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.
Grace and Hope
Grace and hope are two powerful forces working in the life of believers. Through faith in Christ, you have access to the grace of God. The grace of God is the underserved privilege you enjoy as His child. You do not deserve access into the presence of God. There was nothing you did that made you worthy to enter into a relationship with Christ. It was God’s grace that opened the door and invited you into the throne room as His child.
God pours out His grace on you and fills you with His favor. Every time you close your eyes in prayer, you exercise the grace of God.
Grace Beyond Understanding
God’s grace is beyond comprehension. You will never understand how His grace saved you and how His grace is working in your life. You can never plumb the depths of God’s grace. The wisest pastor and the most well-studied theologian only have a small grasp for the grace of God.
All you can do is be thankful for the standing you have in Christ because of His grace. But God’s grace is just the beginning. You can also rejoice for the hope you have in Christ.
Hope in Christ
Hope is not wishful thinking. Hope understands that God is in control and is working all things together for your good.
Hope looks beyond the issues of today and sees what God will do in the future. Hope understands that God is working in the world, the way He is working your life. He is bringing all things together for His glory. One day, your hope will be a reality as you see Christ face-to-face and participate in His glory.
Your hope is not in this world but in the Kingdom of God that is coming. Your hope is to spend eternity with Christ. Reigning and ruling with Him.
You Can Rejoice
You can rejoice today because one day, you will participate in the glory of God. As His Child and a member of the Kingdom of God, you will live forever in the glory of Christ.
The problems and difficulties of the world around you will not reduce your hope. You can still rejoice no matter what your situation is because you know His grace. You know the best is yet to come.
Look at that promise again.
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. – Romans 5:2
Make these confessions.
I have God’s grace pouring over me today.
I have the undeserved favor of God.
My hope is not in this world but in the grace of God.
I can rejoice today because God is in charge and working for my good.
In Jesus name,
God has filled you with grace and hope. His grace has made you a child of God and gives you hope for tomorrow and all eternity.
