Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,…
Through Jesus we have been given peace with God. The word peace means to be one with, a state of harmony. Once born again we become one spirit with the Lord. As Jesus is so are we in this present age because we are one with Him. There is no war between you and God because you are one with Him. The devil does all he can to convince believers that God is mad at them so that they won’t draw near to God. But when Jesus bore our sin He also bore the punishment our sin deserved. The Word of God tells us we will not face the wrath of God to come. In Isaiah 54:8-10 God gave a promise that as our Redeemer He would not be angry with us nor remove His covenant of peace from us. For all who are redeemed we have this promise from God. So don’t run from Him, run to Him because He has given to us a covenant of peace.
