Romans 5:02 - Undeserved Privilege Bookmark

"through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God." (NASB)
 
"By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God." (KJV)
 
"Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God's glory. " (NLT)
 
"through whom we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of God's glory." (NET)
 
Remark here also the difference of Abraham's faith and ours.  He believed God could perform what He promised.  We are called to believe He has performed.  Faith in God's word, believing God, and this faith laying hold on His power in resurrection, is faith that this has lifted us out of the whole effect of our sins...The work is done; the believer has part in it, and is justified. Having been justified, we have peace with God, we stand in divine favor, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.  We believe in a God who has intervened in power to raise Him from the dead who had borne our offences, and who, being raised, is the eternal witness that our sins are put away, and that the only true God is He who has done it in love. I have then peace with Him; all my sins are blotted out — annulled — by the work of Christ; my unburdened heart knows the Savior God. I stand as a present thing in that grace or favor, God's blessed present favor resting on me, which is better than life.  Through Christ, entered into His presence, I am even now in the enjoyment of His favor, in present grace.  All the fruits of the old man are cancelled before God by the death of Christ.  There cannot be a question as to my sins between me and God. He has nothing to impute to me — that has been all settled in Christ's death and resurrection.  As to the present time, I am brought into His presence in the enjoyment of His favor. Grace characterizes my present relationship with God. Further, all my sins having been put away according to the requirements of God's glory, and Christ being risen from the dead, having met all that glory, I rejoice in the hope of the glory of God It is a full well-grounded hope of being in it, not a coming short of it.  All is connected with God Himself, with, and according to, His perfections, the favor of God, and His glory for our hope.  All is connected with His power in resurrection — peace with God already settled, the present favor of God, and the hope of glory. (Dr. John Darby)
