Being at Peace with God

THEREFORE being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ– Romans 5:1. We are not at war with God, and contrary to some schools of thought, God is not at war with us, rather we are at peace with Him. Peace with God is something that we have received because we are justified by the faith of Jesus Christ. Peace is not something that we need to hope for but rather it is something received, something spiritually enjoyed, and something God believes we deserve because Jesus gave his life so that we will forever be justified and have continuous peace with our heavenly Father.” ~LMJ~
