How do we describe the peace that comes from being justified by God? It is peace with God. This peace was secured for us by the death of Christ. We have access into a new status of favor with God because we have peace with him. This peace produces the hope of future glory with God.
How do we enjoy peace with God? We assure our hearts before God. We experience the sense of peace in our present lives because we have real peace in the presence of God. As far as it depends on us, we live in peace with all people, giving witness to them that God has made peace through Christ our Lord.
