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
      Last year, as well as earlier this year we studied In The Beginning..., how this world began. We covered the topics of God, Creation, the fall of Satan, the fall of mankind, and the promise of redemption. We briefly covered the first 3 chapters of Genesis. Join us as we continue this series, as we cover the next few chapters in Genesis. Lord willing, we will look at Cain and Abel, Generations of Adam, Noah, and other topics.


Last Week:
      We had Mark Salomon as a guest speaker last week. We appreciate his willingness to preach to us from God's Word.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our

      We continue our series in Genesis.
