Rooftop Access


Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 
— Romans 5:1-2

 

We were at a hotel not too long ago and I thought I could avoid us having to wait for an elevator so, I took the stairs. At one point there was a large sign that read, Access to Roof Top. I, of course, tried to open it but the door was locked, you needed a card to unlock the door. Did you know so many of us want to get to a high place in life, the roof top, if you will…with no luck at alI. Why? You need an access card. 

Faith is your access card to glory. Faith is the only way God can intervene in your affairs. Faith is the only entry point that will allow God to move in the miraculous. Remember when Jesus went to His hometown and could do nothing? Why? “And because of their unbelief, he couldn't do any miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them.” Mark 6:5. Their UNBELIEF stopped Jesus from doing anything miraculous! 

If you’ve allowed fear to grip you or have replaced faith for “common sense”, God cannot move. That’s why even the tiniest amount of faith can make a mountain move! Faith alone, with no doubt or fear muddled in can overcome the impossible! It’s not too late. It’s not impossible. It’s not the end! Have faith in God!
