Got Access ?

Got Access ? Romans 5:1 – 11 Main Point: We have access into God’s grace thru faith in Jesus Christ, and His commitment to produce perseverance and character in us Access = moving toward, able to approach(God) Grace = unmerited favor, goodness, and mercy of God towards us 1. Access into God’s grace comes only through Faith in Jesus Christ (4:23) not by good works or obeying the Law. (verses 1-2) Faith = believing responses to God’s drawing/calling Ephesians 2:8-9 Now good is not always what we think it should be… 2. Sufferings produce perseverance, character and more hope confirmed by the Holy Spirit in us! (verses 3-5) Sufferings = Hebrews 4:16 3. God’s commitment to us : While we were yet powerless, sinners, enemies of God, Christ died for us that we might be reconciled (restoration!). (verses 6-11) I John 3:1b ‘How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!’
