have been made right with God because of our faith.
- Now we have
peace with him because of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Believing what God
tells us about Jesus is true, is called faith. When we do what
our faith tells us and ask Jesus into our hearts, we are saved.
It is through faith in Jesus Christ that we are given God's perfect
peace, and are no longer His enemies. Did I say, "Enemies?"
Yes! When we don't know God, Satan can use us as enemies against
God's Kingdom. It is only through Jesus and His love for us that
we know how to become "friends" to God. Not just friends,
but "God's own children."
