The simple truth of knowing you have peace with God will change so much in your life. When I was in my early 20’s, I struggled with the understanding of God’s assurance, forgiveness and peace. When I finally embraced the truth that through Christ I have peace with God, all the uncertain and troubled feelings I felt on the inside were gone. I finally had peace with God.
Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ;Romans 5:1
Justification in Christ is the process where God forgives our sin and remembers it no more. Through justification, God sees us as if he were seeing his Son, Jesus. We are blessed to have the righteousness of Jesus, no more guilt and peace with God.
Sanctification is the daily process of God making us more like Christ. Being saved doesn’t instantly change all our humanness, but through the power of Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit day by day we become more like Christ. In Philippians 1:6, we have promise that when we were saved, God started his work in us and will continue until our life is done or Jesus returns.
Peace with God is a blessing like no other. Accept his peace today.
