Therefore being justified by faith, We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1.
The verse above says, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ.” This means there is no war, no fight between you and God!
The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has brought you into an everlasting peace with God. The peace referred to here is more than just a ceasefire or quietness; it means oneness. We have been brought into a perfect union, a perfect unity with God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
But we all, with unveiled face, Beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord,
Are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, Just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
When you read the Word of God, you are looking into the mirror of God. The verse above tells us that what you see in the mirror of God as you “look” (study the Word), is the glory of God. It means that as you behold the glory of God you are changed into the glory that you see in the Word.
Did you know that God is excited about you? You need to take some time, right now, and think about that!
Some people only ever think about God’s wrath; they believe that God is always mad at them. They have been raised to think that God is only concerned about sin, and because there is so much sin in the world, He’s mad at everybody. No!
