Scripture: Romans 5:1-2
Romans 5:1-2 says, “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.” Being justified by faith has the fruit of af-es-is, remission of sin. When we say yes and we believe it, when we choose it then Romans 5 is the clear result. ‘Thank You, Jesus, for taking away all record of sin and making us clean, therefore without blame, shame or guilt we have peace because You justified us through Your Blood.’ Af-es-is is real and it works! These verses outline one of God’s manifest promises in action. The entire book of Ephesians is a progression. It is a progression that starts with relationship and then goes to the glory of His Presence and beyond that to the exceeding greatness of His power. It is about vibrant warriors fully prepared to represent their Holy Father. It was the life pattern of Paul as he became who he was in Scripture. God is offering us the same path. Let’s embrace it, live it and walk it out! It is available.
