“Justification comes by faith and faith brings peace with God”
The world has not known peace as it ought to know it. No movement of peace can bring the true peace that will last long. The heart of man is wicked and we must also understand that the world does not know what peace is. The language of the world is war and not peace. This is because the enemy planted this in the heart of man. But when a man comes to Jesus, he enters into a place of peace with God.
- How can a man come into peace with God?
It’s simple! You need to be justified by faith. This is to understand the work that Jesus Christ did for you on the cross. He’s the access into what you’re looking for. True peace will not come unless you give yourself to God.
Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
By giving yourself to Him, you come into peace. That’s why He said emphatically that there is a peace that the world gives but there is a peace that He gives.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
He compared His peace to that of the world saying, the peace I give is not as the world gives it. We must understand that scripture said clearly that the peace of God passes all understanding and that He is the God of peace.
Ephesians 1:2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Romans 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
To truly engage God’s peace. We must enter through Jesus, whereby we are being justified by Him. This is what guarantee true peace, such that in the midst of raging war and storm, you have peace within that is stronger than the raging war and storm. God give you peace!
