People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:2


Ro 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace. Two things are essential before one can enter into the state of peace ("grace"): (1) Christ, our Mediator; (2) a living faith in him. Having entered into this covenant relation, we can rejoice in hope of enjoying "the glory of God" in heaven.

Discussion for Romans 5:2

  • We are now in union with the One who gives victory, for His life is victorious. His life always wins. Nevertheless, while victory is assured, it is not automatic. We must choose to depend upon these truths. We must let Christ live His life through us to enable us to experience His victory. As Romans 5:2 so clearly states, we access His grace divine enablement by faith moment by moment choices.
  • What is the key that unlocks accesses grace? It is faith dependence on God, as opposed to self dependence. Faith, in this context, is a choice to rely upon God to appropriate His grace in any given situation, whether victory over sin or endurance amid trials, etc. It is trusting in the Lord with all the heart rather than leaning to our own understanding. It is asking for God s enablement, in any given situation, and then believing He has already given it. Pastor James Hollandsworth Kingdom Preparation
