Bits & Pieces: Faith (6)

"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 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," (Romans 5:1,2).

* Paul bids us ponder the past, when we were justified, to be grateful for the present grace, and joyfully anticipate the time when we will be glorified. And from first to last, it is the faith granted us by the Lord Jesus which initiates, sustains, and culminates in our salvation.
