Having Peace with God

Romans 5:1-2 - Chapter by chapter, Paul’s letter to the Romans has explained that all men were under God’s judgement, all men have hope through justification by faith, and now he is explaining that we can have peace with God. We were previously enemies but now we can have assurance and a resting faith in our salvation through Jesus Christ! Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones outlines how we know if we have this assurance and peace with God: our mind will be content with process of justification by faith, we know that Christ loves us despite us being sinners, we can answer the accusations of our conscience and the devil, and we no longer fear death or judgement. If we were to fail or falter at any of these tests, then we may not have a true peace with God. Sometimes sin makes us question or doubt our justification, but regardless, our salvation is still true. Dr. Lloyd-Jones reminds us that justification is one declarative act forever and our faith always can fight this doubt victoriously! Dr. Lloyd-Jones then goes on to explain what the results of justification by faith produce in our lives as well as discussing what a false sense of peace with God is.
