The “Fruit” of Justification is “ACCESS TO GOD.”

Have you ever known someone, who may know someone , who may even know someone who can get you into a place you want to go or to meet someone you want to meet, who apart from them would be impossible for you to get into or meet! Over the centuries people have come up with many ways of how they have claimed they knew how they could get you into Heaven or have the favor of God, but have been unable to deliver, because they have not come God’s way which is exclusive, “…through our LORD Jesus Christ…” and to those who have come through God’s Son, it opens up a realm of spiritual blessings which Paul reveals in these verses for us to exult, rejoice in…Consider…

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God” – {Romans 5:1-2}.

The verse begins “we have…,” how beautiful, assuring and secure these two words are to the believer, the certainty, assurance, “we have…” not “we wish we had …or we hope to have at some stage, but are not certain we will.”  But “we have,” present tense! Let those two words sink in.

The word, “ACCESS,” {“Introduction,”} was sometimes used of an official in an Oriental court called a “Chamberlain. He conducted visitors into the Kings Presence, announced their names and left. It was used of someone who introduced a person into the presence of royalty. The LORD Jesus has ushered us into the presence of the Father and not then to usher us out again , but to remain forever and with favor, as “we stand in grace,”- full acceptance, Divine favor! And when we sin, does that exclude and cause us to be forced, abandoned away from His favor, and graciousness? No, for where sin abounds, grace Super-abounds There is grace for our sin, always operating on our behalf, we are never cast back under the law, under the Divine wrath of God and judgement, for Christ bore our sin once for all! We stand in the grace of God which ever works for us and is limitless, eternally so! The Graciousness of God, lavished upon us and forever operating in that realm. How amazing is the God who extends His Grace to us- unmerited favor, eternal favor through our LORD Jesus Christ, We never can or fall out from the realm of the Grace of God. we are eternally enveloped in the Grace of God, nothing can sever us from this position of “standing in grace!” Grace Rules, Grace Reigns, Grace is always operating on our behalf… and we have our “introduction, access” to God “into this grace in which we stand…” through our LORD Jesus Christ…

But Jesus not only Knows the way to the Father, He is “THE WAY” -{John 14:6} … and He not only Announces you by Name but His Desire is that you be there, He has Prayed to that end!  ” Father I DESIRE WHERE I, AM, that  they { Put your name in here}… BE WITH ME ALSO, TO BEHOLD MY GLORY.”-{John 17:24}.

Not only is it His DESIRE but His DELIGHT,” To Him who is Able to … PRESENT YOU before His GLORIOUS PRESENCE without Fault and With GREAT JOY…” -{Jude 24}… Jesus is not only “THE WAY”- He is Exclusive, His way and Only His Way, but it is His DESIRE for you to be there and it is His DELIGHT To Present you there, and DEATH- His Death in your place and mine, as our Sin Bearer, in order through His sinless Sacrifice on our behalf before a Holy God to satisfy the penalty for sin. And so, His Desire and Delight in presenting you Faultless and with “GREAT JOY!” before The Father.

Jesus, unlike the “chamberlain,” did not only announce and conduct you into the presence of the Father, He stayed!

He is seated in the place of majesty and ultimate authority as your Advocate! Through Him alone and His Perfect Sacrifice on Calvary…then you too have unlimited access  and eternal favor to and with the Father … which includes…


  1. HIS PERSON – Heb 4:15-16 – “For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have One who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet He did not sin. Let us then approach THE THRONE OF GRACE with confidence, SO THAT we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need.”
  2. HIS POWER  – Eph 1:18-19 – “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be’ enlightened in order that you may KNOW the…His incomparable GREAT POWER for us who believe.”
  3. HIS PROVISION – 2 Peter 1:3 – “His divine Power HAS GIVEN US EVERYTHING we need for Life and Godliness through Him who called us by His own Glory and Goodness.”
  4. HIS PROMISES – 2 Peter 1:4 – “Through these He has Given us His very GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES, SO THAT through Them you may participate in the Divine nature…”
  5. HIS PRIVILEGES – 2 Cor 6:1 – “And working together with Him…” …in Evangelizing with the Gospel {Matt 28:20}…in Edifying up His church {Eph 4:17}… in Exalting Him {Isa 12:4, Eph 3:21. 1 Cor 10:31}

Your Access is PERMANENT…you cannot lose it.

It is PERSONAL– … it’s for you!

It’s PLURAL…It’s for all who turn to God and trust His Son…

It has been PURCHASED – through the Blood of Jesus Christ

Hebrews 10:19 says,” Therefore brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the Blood of Jesus, by  a New and Living way OPENED FOR US THROUGH the curtain, that is HIS BODY, and since we have a great  Priest over the House of God, let us DRAW NEAR TO GOD with a sincere heart in FULL ASSURANCE of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to Cleanse us from a Guilty Conscience …”

The Highest and fullest achievement of Peacemaking, and reconciliation is seen in our ACCESS TO GOD…Ephesians 2:18 reads, “FOR THOUGH HIM…”- IT IS EMPHATIC…THOUGH JESUS CHRIST, and JESUS CHRIST- ALONE, IS OUR GLORIOUS ACCESS TO THE ONE TRUE AND ONLY GOD!! We read also in Ephesians 3:12- “in whom we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him.

  • THANK GOD- you have permanent Access
  • REMIND SOMEONE TODAY- Who knows the Lord Jesus – of their “ACCESS.”
  • PRAY AND ASK GOD- For an OPPORTUNITY to share with someone who does not know Him how based on Romans 5:1-2 this “ACCESS” is obtained!
