Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our greatest accomplished goal in life is to have peace with God. It is made possible through the cross of Christ. How I love what that cross represents! It represents our value to Him. It reveals to us how much God desired us. His desire for me now trumps the rejection I have suffered from others. All we have to do is accept His provision by faith to be at peace with our God. This causes peace from within and without. How the world is crying out for peace this time of year and looking in all the wrong places. Peace came down from heaven and embraced His Father’s will, the cross, so you and I could be reconciled to God and find true peace. That is the gift God purchased for you with the blood of His Son. Receive His costly gift today. It is a gift we never stop receiving, and He never stops giving. It is ours daily, moment by moment. Christmas never ends for His children! Find peace in the Truth.
In His love.
This is the beautiful, peaceful, setting I awoke to yesterday morning. What a peaceful reminder of His Presence and a wonderful way to start my day with a thankful heart!
