Access by Faith by Pastor Melissa Scott

In Romans 5: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand.” This verse in the Greek conveys a picture of a sphere that is moving from one dimension of life to another, as though you move on a stage from out of darkness into the center of the spotlight; and now as you move around, you are bathed in the light of that spot.

Pastor Scott points out that Paul is saying we have access, not by works, but by faith; faith in God’s Word of promise that “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) That promise is to every one of us.
