A Daily Word – November 8

November 8

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. – Romans 5:1-2

Prior to being reconciled—or “made one with”—God, we are at war, “enmity,” with Him (Romans 8:7James 4:4). When peace is established, war is over. Jesus gives us peace with God, ending our state of enmity against Him. “I’ve made my peace with God,” some say as they contemplate death. But humans don’t establish that peace. An armistice in which no one wins is not true peace. Peace comes when there is a victor. Jesus conquered the enmity at the cross, and reconciled us to the Father. We are at peace with Him in Christ.
