Romans 5:1 (NKJV) Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

When we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ by faith we are instantly justified by the righteousness of Christ. And “we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” This is the peace that comes to our souls when we trust in Christ as our Savior. Because of what Christ has done for us, God the Father extends His grace to us and no longer has any charge against us. We are no longer guilty because our Lord Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins and has reconciled us to God. God has redeemed us through the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ. And our salvation is permanent and eternal because Jesus was our substitute. “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV). This is the peace we have through Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Our sins are forgiven and everything is right between us and God because Christ died for us. And now God can say to lost sinners, “Come.” God’s arms are outstretched and He says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 NKJV). We have peace through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and it is a wonderful peace, the rest of redemption. My friend, God has reconciled the world unto Himself through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. You don’t need to shed tears to soften the heart of God. You don’t have to work for salvation. And you can’t buy salvation. You don’t have to do anything. All you have to do is simply believe. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV). God is reconciled today because Jesus Christ died on the Cross. And the proof that God is reconciled is Jesus’ resurrection. God is pleased with the substitutionary sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. God is reconciled. The next move is yours, my friend. Accept the free gift of salvation by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, then you will experience peace, the rest of redemption.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
