On a scale of 1 - 10, what is your level of joy?

 

Relationship with God is not unlike a marriage relationship.

 

1.    We can rejoice because we have acceptance with God.

 

By nature we are enemies of God, but by putting our trust in Jesus, we have been reconciled and have peace with God.

 

It is not until you have peace with God that you can know the peace of God.

 

 Before you are saved thereis war withGod, there is enmity.

 

2. We can rejoice because we have access to God.

We are no longer separated. It is no longer such that we can come to God without being  destroyed.

We can come boldly to God through the blood of Christ.

Because of the work of Christ, we now are as a chosen race, we are as the royal priests that formerly were the only ones who had access to the holiest of holies.

 

3. We can rejoice because we have a standing

Now our state of grace is firm. We cannot be moved from our fixed standing in God.

Our standing is geared toward making us more Christlike. God is committed to our development...to making us like His Son.

 

Application

 

If you have been saved, identify with that state and enjoy it. We have moved from condemnation to grace.

 

Be quick to welcome newcomers to this state. We are to show grace to each other because we have received grace.

 

Before you can enter the state of grace you have to accept the invitation.
