Romans 5:2 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
By whom also - We are not only indebted to our Lord Jesus Christ for the free and full pardon which we have received, but our continuance in a justified state depends upon his gracious influence in our hearts, and his intercession before the throne of God.
We have access - προσαγωγην εσχηκαμεν, We have received this access. It was only through Christ that we could at first approach God; and it is only through him that the privilege is continued to us. And this access to God, or introduction to the Divine presence, is to be considered as a lasting privilege. We are not brought to God for the purpose of an interview, but to remain with him; to be his household; and, by faith, to behold his face, and walk in the light of his countenance.
Into this grace - This state of favor and acceptance.
Wherein we stand - Having firm footing, and a just title through the blood of the Lamb to the full salvation of God.
And rejoice - Have solid happiness, from the evidence we have of our acceptance with Him.
In hope of the glory of God - Having our sins remitted, and our souls adopted into the heavenly family, we are become heirs; for if children, then heirs, Galatians 4:7; and that glory of God is now become our endless inheritance. While the Jews boast of their external privileges - that they have the temple of God among them; that their priests have an entrance to God as their representatives, carrying before the mercy-seat the blood of their offered victims; we exult in being introduced by Jesus Christ to the Divine presence; his blood having been shed and sprinkled for this purpose; and thus we have, spiritually and essentially, all that these Jewish rites, etc., signified. We are in the peace of God, and we are happy in the enjoyment of that peace, and have a blessed foretaste of eternal glory. Thus we have heaven upon earth, and the ineffable glories of God in prospect.

"They which receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life" (Rom. v. 17). Precious souls sometimes fight tremendous battles in order to attain to righteousness in trying places. Perhaps the heart has become wrong in some matter where temptation has been allowed to overcome, or at least to turn it aside from its singleness unto God; and the conflict is a terrible one as it seeks to adjust itself and be right with God, and finds itself baffled by its own spiritual foes, …

Access into Grace
For whom did Christ Die?
Sin and Grace
yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
1 Corinthians 15:1
Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
