Yesterday we simply looked at Jesus promise about peace from John’s gospel. Today Paul described the ultimate nature of peace.
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Romans 5:1 ESV
The coming of Jesus brings peace, peace between me and God. It is when that peace fills me that I can begin to have peace with others. It’s not a magic wand, an instant change, it’s a process of development. When I grow in my appreciation of this peace with God I can really start to grow in peace with others. This is the work of the Spirit, and is why peace is one on the fruits of the Spirit. (See Galatians 5:22-23)
