Scripture :

Romans 5:1 – Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Observation :

Romans chapter five speaks to the peace and hope that the believer has because of Christ. As a result of the gospel Christians are justified and as a result no longer have to live in fear or in need of chasing satisfaction from things in the world. Christians have the ultimate peace and satisfaction which is the peace that comes with being reconciled to God.

Application :

Ultimately my life does not have to be defined by anxiety or the worries of the world. I have peace with God because of the gospel. In light of this my life should be defined not by worry and stress but freedom and love. Today, I want to live in the peace of God and point others to Christ.

Prayer :

God thank You for the gospel. Thank You that because of the work of Christ I can have peace and hope. Help me to reach others with the same peace that has been given to me.
