Peace on Earth Day 10 – Christmas Selah
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:1, ESV)
We talked earlier this week about our connection with God being broken because of our sin. But this Scripture verse reminds us that we can have peace with God; it’s possible if we’ve been justified by our faith! For those of us who believe, we have been made right with God through Jesus’ finished work on the cross.
May this beautiful truth center us for worship today. As we gather with other believers, we can lift our voices and hearts in worship and adoration to this One who has justified us. He offers us peace—a peace that came at a great price—through Jesus’ shed blood. What comfort, hope, joy and delight this brings God’s children.
