It’s through Christ we have access by faith (what we believe) into this grace (what we can’t earn and don’t deserve) in which we stand, and rejoice in hope (a brighter tomorrow) of the glory of God (making God look good).
“through whom also we have access by faith [what we believe] into this grace [what we can’t earn and don’t deserve] in which we stand, and rejoice in hope [a brighter tomorrow] of the glory of God [making God look good].” – Apostle Paul
In other words, being something-other-than-common gives you access. This access comes from believing what others around you do not. As a result, you gain things no one else around you does and have favor when you shouldn’t. Knowing this, should bring you joy even when your present circumstances say otherwise.
No-longer-common is having this access, by what we believe, to gain what we can’t earn and don’t deserve so that we can rejoice in the brighter tomorrow for one purpose -so that God looks good.
The above scripture quote is from Romans 5:2 of the New International Version.
