Standing in grace
Since Romans 5:1-10 is such a rich passage, I am going to spend the week reflecting on it along with Psalm 139.
What struck me this morning is how much God has done–He has done it all. We stand in grace but only because he has put us there in the first place. The image I get is that we are floating on the sea of grace. We may swim in it but our strokes are almost effortless, free from any sense of struggle or tension. Need to find a picture of someone swimming in the dead sea to fit this.
