Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope in the glory of God.
This is such a tremendous verse, showing us the height and depth of our faith. From the moment we acknowledged our sin and reached out to God for the gift of His salvation, we obtained access to His amazing grace. This divine favour from our Lord and Saviour, in which we stand, grants us the privilege of obtaining what we do not deserve.
By grace we will not receive the punishment for our sin.
By grace we will not be veiled from His presence.
By grace we will not be shut out from the glory of God.
Because, through Him the great debt has been paid, the veil was torn in two and we became heirs with Christ to share in the glory of God. That is something truly worthy of rejoicing in.
