We Rejoice in Hope

...we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus
Christ, through whom we have gained access by
faith into this grace in which we now stand...
And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
Romans 5:1, 2

Every Christian is justified by faith and has peace
with God--therefore he rejoices in hope of the glory
of God. It simply cannot be otherwise. It is true of
you, too. Since Christ has justified you for time and
eternity, since He has established peace between you
and God for time and eternity, then He will also give
you the glory of God when in due time He presents
you with all His own, having neither spot, nor wrin-
kle, nor any such thing. You may look forward to
this day with joyful expectation.  Paol Madsen

Reader, All is due to Christ alone. This is how Paul
knows that the Romans also, though personally un-
known to him, could rejoice in hope of the glory of
REJOICE!  His coming in glory is closer than what
we can comprehend...
