Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Justified, peace, access, grace, hope, and glory — what a wonderful collection of gifts! Each of these gifts is ours because of One — One reason, One person, and One Lord: Jesus Christ, the Son of God and our Savior. Our faith in Jesus opens the door for us to rejoice in our assured hope of sharing in God's glory. In troubling times, this hope is precious. In good times, this hope promises us even greater things. In every circumstance, this hope can empower us to live for Jesus.
