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

            Peace… our world is in search of it, or so it says, but it will never find true peace.  There may be times of calm, but there will never be true peace until Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is reigning on earth after this age.  Do you want peace?            

            What joy there is to be at peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ!  This is a peace that can never be taken away.  Once I was an enemy of God’s, but I have been reconciled to Him through the death of Jesus and now I am saved through the resurrected Jesus, having called on His Name (Romans 5:10; 10;13). 

            Now I have a peace that can never be taken away because this Peace is a Person, the Son of God.  This peace does not depend on circumstances.  It is only dependent on the One who will never leave me nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5).  How does one get that peace?

Thank You, Dear Father, for the peace You have given me through Jesus.  I am so grateful that nothing in all creation, not even death itself, can separate me from the peace I have in Him!  Now, may I live out the remainder of my life to honor Jesus through the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.  Yes, so may that be!
