Peace With God Through Faith In Christ

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. – Romans 5:1-2

There are countless millions who have heard the story of Christ and have recognized him as God in the flesh, and yet they have not believed upon his name to justify them before God and reconcile them to the Father.

Even though Christ came to the world for the purpose of bringing peace to mankind there still are those who are willing to risk peace in this life, and in the life to come, just so they can do it their way. Unfortunately, their way does not lead to peace and life but rather to chaos and death.

There are many millions more who have heard the story of Christ and have accepted the truth of God in Christ and have placed their faith in Christ. Those of us who are in that number have learned that it is only through faith in Christ and the finished work of Calvary that we have peace with God.

When we have believed the message of Christ, and have by faith made a commit of our life to him, there is something released to us from God. In another place Paul wrote, “By grace are you saved through faith” (Ephesians 2:8).

It is by faith that we gain access to God’s favor, or grace. Once the door of grace has been opened to us we move beyond the realm of what man can do and move into the realm of what God can do.

Mixed in among the millions who hear and don’t believe, there is a significant number of those who hear, believe and open their heart in faith to the Son of God. When that happens all of the hopelessness, fear and chaos of this world evaporates and the peace of God reigns in our hearts. Because we have been justified through faith we have peace with God.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for allowing me to hear of Christ and to believe upon him. You have opened the door of heaven and by your grace I have entered in. Thank you for your faithfulness.
