Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

fields of grace

(Continued from 3/7 – what I love about christianity  & 3/8 – just as if )
Romans 5:2 “through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand;”
 
We have access (approach God) by faith into grace/favor in which we stand firm.
The Message bible puts v 2 this way – “We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.”
 
“Standing in grace” – sometimes it ‘feels’ like we are knee deep in mud. When it feels like that remember truth – Grace in where we stand. You may need to remind yourself of this when your emotions/feelings try to tell you something different.
 
It is the power of God that enables us to stand. Don’t forget where you are standing! Field of God’s grace!!
 
The second part of v 2 says “and we exult in hope of the glory of God.”
 
Hope is our anchor (Heb 6:19-20)
 
We have an anchor that keeps us sure and steady. It doesn’t fasten to the sand but enters within the veil and fastens onto Christ. Jesus paid the price for us. Our hope is fastened on Him.
 
“But as for me, I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.” Psalm 71:14
 
standing in grace – filled with hope,
 til next time
