Verse of the Day (September 23, 2020) #BMSeminary – {vv. 1-5} Justified by faith (lit., “because we have been justified by faith”): It was God’s doing, not man’s. Peace with God: This is not a feeling but a standing. God and the believer are no longer at enmity but have been reconciled (cf. 5:10, 11; 2 Cor. 5:18). This is a primary result of our justification. Access: We can come directly into the presence of God. Jesus Christ is not only our Redeemer, but He is also our Advocate. By Him we gain entrance and acceptance before the Father (cf. 1 John 2:1, 2). Wherein we stand: This is the answer to the psalmist’s question: “If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?” (Ps. 130:3). Rejoice (lit., “we boast”) in hope denotes the absolute certainty the believer has of God’s deliverance. [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
