Happy Monday Saints.
At our recent Communion, we looked at Romans 5:1 “THEREFORE, SINCE WE HAVE BEEN DECLARED RIGHTEOUS BY FAITH, WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.”
Christ died on the cross for our sins and rose again for our justification, and if you believe that with all your heart – you are DECLARED RIGHTEOUS.
We aren’t declared righteous by our own merits; we are declared righteous by having FAITH in Jesus. Because of Him, we have right standing with God.
1Timothy 2:5 says that “THERE IS ONE GOD AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MANKIND, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS.”
Christ stands between mankind and God to reconcile us to the Father. He alone bore the sins of the world, and He is the only way that we can be made right with God.
There is no other mediator – Jesus is the only ONE. And because of Him, we HAVE PEACE WITH GOD.
Now that you HAVE PEACE WITH GOD – your past, your sins, your faults, your mistakes, your imperfections and your failures don’t stand between you and God. They’ve been washed away by the precious blood of Christ.
All our fears, our guilt, our humiliation, our stigma, our disgrace, our dishonour, and our embarrassment – are brought to nothing as they are now replaced with PEACE before God.
We’ve gone from being God’s guilty enemies to being His justified sons and daughters who’ve been DECLARED RIGHTEOUS.
We don’t have to hide from His presence in shame but instead enjoy His presence with PEACE. Let Christ’s peace RULE YOUR HEART AND MIND so that even if you’re walking through the valley of the shadow of death, you will fear no evil because HE IS WITH YOU.
Have a fabulous week Saints. God bless and lots’a love,
