Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. – Romans 5:1-2 [NKJV]
Isn’t it wonderful to know that we are no more enemies of God? We are at peace with God! We have been justified through Jesus Christ! How does this affect us? We can come boldly to God.
Remember how it feels when you meet someone to whom you owe some money or to whom you have done something wrong? You feel ashamed and you are not bold but imagine if your debt is paid and everything has been made right. You will have new boldness.
You have peace with GOD. There is no need to be afraid or to continue to feel guilty. You can deal freely with God and know that all things have been settled through Jesus Christ.
Dear heavenly father, I am glad that my debt has been paid and I am at peace with you through Jesus Christ. Please help me to remember this truth today and always. Thank you for loving me and accepting me as a child. As I go out today, help me to share this good news with others. I pray all these in Jesus Name!
