The wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory!

By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise. ~ Romans 5:1-2 (The Message)

Close your eyes and imagine standing in a place as wide open and spacious as is humanly possible. Now imagine ALL that space being filled with God’s grace and glory. And you are completely engulfed by it; surrounded on every side by a warmth and radiance and beauty like nothing you have ever experienced. Like a little child being swept up into her father’s enormous, loving arms God longs to completely embrace us in his grace and glory.

How can we not stand tall and shout our praise?!
