“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,” Rom. 5:1

 Many people try to somehow get peace with a god.  It is usually about making sure you do a lot of good things.  In any case, you should make sure to do more good than bad things.  But you can never be really sure if god is pleased.

 The message of the Bible is different in that God sent His Son, Jesus, to bear our sins and their punishment.  On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead because He was innocent and spotless.  Therefore, we can now have peace with God through Jesus.

 When you believe in Jesus, you are made righteous, by God.  A miracle happens inside you.  All your sin is removed and Jesus moves into your heart through the Spirit of God.  You will be acquitted and have peace with God as a gift.  Thanks to Jesus for making it possible for us to have peace with God.  And the result is that you will do a lot of good things, out of gratitude and joy.

 God bless you.
