Many of us long for peace, and a few minutes of silence may soothe our minds on any given day. However, the Bible teaches that real peace…peace with GOD….comes from and through Jesus Christ.
Apostle Paul said, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1
Without Christ, we are enemies of God because of our sin. THANKFULLY, accepting Jesus’ sacrifice reconciles us to God and ends the hostility that once existed between us. Colossians 1: 19-21 He now sees us as Christ presents us: “holy and blameless, and above reproach.” vs 22
That is shouting, jump up and down Good News!
One thing is certain though, lets not forget that having peace with God does not ensure a problem free life. Yet, it does steady us during difficult seasons that arise in our lives. Jesus told His followers, “In this world you will have tribulation,” but He also said, “In Me you may have peace” John 16:33
Therefore, no matter where you are in your day, or what you may be currently facing. Look to Jesus! He alone is our true peace and comforter.
