Peace With God

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we stand. - Romans 5:1

I Don't Deserve It

I am a believer which by definition means that I am justified in the court of heaven. Wow. I don't deserve that.

Another way of saying that is this: I have peace with God.

Hang on, Let me say that again.

I. Have. Peace. With. God.

I have (right now) peace with God. If I am trying to work for peace with God, I am wasting my time. I am already justified. But I know I get this confused sometimes.

I feel like I have to make things right with Him. But the debt is paid. It is finished.

I Can Confess My Sin Right Now

Still, I do need to confess my sin. Why can I feel like God is not happy with me? I've broken the relationship by holding on to unconfessed sin. But hey, that's good news. Because I can confess my sin right now.

The verse says I have access into this grace.

I have it. Now.

I can boldly come to the throne of grace. Because of Jesus.

How foolish it is for people to win the lottery and live like paupers. How foolish it is for me, a child of the Lord God Almighty, to act like I don't have access to Him. Today. Now.

Lord, I know that you listen to me. I know that I must confess my sin regularly. Daily and more. Help me live my life as a believer who knows that I am justified, that I have peace with God, through you. And may I not forget that I have real access. Lord, enlarge my understanding of what this means. Blow my mind! Blessed Be the Name of the Lord.
