“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:1-2
There are precious promises from God almighty in these verses, aren’t there? FAITH. PEACE. GRACE. REJOICING. HOPE. GLORY. Wow. We are declared innocent from our sins and are spared God’s wrath and the punishment of death, hell, and the lake of fire when we place our FAITH in Jesus Christ as Lord. We are promised PEACE with God! And GRACE! And HOPE! And REJOICING! And best of all we will one day see His full forever amazingly indescribable GLORY! It all begins with putting our TRUST in Jesus as Lord. With turning from our sins and turning to God and His ways. With surrendering ourselves wholly to Christ. The blessings that come when we receive Christ as our Lord and Savior are literally endless. As fabulous as FAITH, PEACE, GRACE, REJOICING, HOPE, AND GOD’S GLORY are, there are infinitely more blessings because God is infinite and those who follow Jesus will be with Him forevermore! How infinitely wonderful is our God! Focus on Jesus, friend. Be thankful for God’s endless blessings! Be thankful if you are His follower for infinity with the Lord of Lords and King of Kings! Oh, rejoice! Yes, rejoice! That Jesus Christ is forever Lord!
