Romans 5:1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Another such picturesque phrase in this passage is the word-picture of Paul "standing in grace." I have always liked the pictures words paint in your head. I always see myself standing knee-deep in grace when I read this. (By the way, for those of you who heard me read it aloud tonight, I meant Romans- not Galatians. I realized after listening to the recording that I had said Galatians aloud as I read it. I guess I was just too anxious to read, and got ahead of myself. I do like to read aloud :)
Another word I like, is sustain. In Spanish you can say sostenme Dios en tu gracia... or sustain me God in your grace. I like the Spanish the most because it rolls off your tongue when you say sostenme. It sounds like suspend, or holding me up, and I can see God carrying me in His arms, holding me up. So, here I am, supported by Grace and God's arms. What better place is there to be? Sustain me in Grace, Jesus.
