Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. - Romans 5:1-2
Prior to being reconciled—or “made one with”—God, we are at war, “enmity,” with Him (Romans 8:7; James 4:4 . When peace is established, war is over. Jesus gives us peace with God, ending our state of enmity against Him. “I’ve made my peace with God,” some say as they contemplate death. But humans don’t establish that peace. An armistice in which no one wins is not true peace. Peace comes when there is a victor. Jesus conquered the enmity at the cross, and reconciled us to the Father. We are at peace with Him in Christ.

OUR THANK YOU TO YOU
Thank You For Your Gift:
Often, we don't know what to say when we get in the presence of God. The Apostles saw that when Jesus prayed, power came into life — a light, a power, and a relevance that was supernatural. They understood that to tap into this power, they would need to learn to pray as Jesus prayed. Join Dr. Ed Young as he shares practical lessons from the Lord's Prayer and discover the power through prayer that can be yours today.
