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. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

– Romans 5:1-2 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

How do you view God? As someone who is waiting for you to mess up? According to the apostle Paul that view is incorrect. When we realized what God did for us through Jesus Christ, any barriers between the Father and His children are gone! An agreement of peace has been reached for all time. When we stand on this grace we have a freedom that goes beyond our performance or abilities. Now we can live as a people who already have peace with God. This is the faith needed when we fall short, because Jesus Christ has given us access today. Make sure to use it!
