2 Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God. Romans 5:2 AMP
There’s a story about a man who saved for a year to take a cruise. He enjoyed all the on-board activities, but he could only afford to eat the cheese and crackers he’d brought with him. For seven days, he ate cheese and crackers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As he was leaving the ship, the captain informed him that the cruise was all-inclusive. Unknowingly, he’d had all access to any of the ship’s gourmet restaurants at no cost to him. It was paid for when he got on board.
Many believers receive salvation through the work of the cross, but never enter the fullness of the Kingdom. They are on board, and enjoy all of the “church activities,” but forgo the authority, prosperity and health that are included.
We have “all access” into the grace of God through our faith in Jesus. Our salvation package is all-inclusive. Don’t wait until you are leaving the ship to discover what you could have had. Determine to explore and enjoy all of the delicious benefits now!
Success and Progress!
