Peace with God - Romans 5

One day I posed a question to the waitress at my table: "If you could ask God for anything, what would your request be?" Her answer was immediate. "I want to feel at peace." She tearfully explained that her grandmother had died and emotional turmoil resulted.

Many in our world are like this young woman, in that they desire inner calmness but have no relationship with the Lord. People often seek contentment by trying to improve their appearance, physical fitness, financial situation, or social status - or by abusing substances. But such things can’t bring tranquility of heart or mind. Only a relationship with Jesus leads to true peace.

Prior to salvation, we were slaves to sin and living in opposition to God (Colossians 1:21). Our transgressions had formed a barrier of hostility between Him and us, which we were helpless to cross on our own. Without God's intervention, we could not have found the way of peace. But our heavenly Father provided the perfect solution to our sin problem. He sent His Son to pay for our iniquities and remove the separation that existed between us and Him.

When we trusted Jesus as our Savior, we were reconciled to the Lord (Romans 5:10) and no longer at odds with Him. In Christ, we have peace with the Father.

Our triune God has provided everything we need for inner tranquility. The Father opened the way for us to be in His family. Jesus continually offers His peace so we can experience serenity of mind and heart (John 14:27). And the Holy Spirit cultivates the fruit of peace in our lives (Galatians 5:22).

Current Sermon Series
      You’re not alone. This series welcomes those who are hurt and alone. We will see that God is with us in every moment. He’s with us through the pain. He comforts us in the waiting. He gives us courage when we feel anxious. During this Christmas season, God With Us provides an inspirational reminder of the impact of Christ’s birth.

Last Week:
      Our deepest need becomes a gift when it drives us to depend on God. Our time in the wilderness often comes after our mountain top experiences with God. Elijah was in a really low time in his life and God encouraged him and never left him.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      Next week we will continue our series by looking at how God is with us while we are In The Storm.
