My grandfather was just old enough to be drafted into the Army in World War I. I remember him telling the story. He had completed basic training and was loaded onto a train with other soldiers. The train headed to the east coast. It was night. The train stopped in a town but he didn’t remember where. But news spread quickly through the train that the war was over! The men were so excited they left the train whooping and hollering! They ran about the town celebrating the peace! Eventually, he was mustered out of the Army, having never faced combat. Peace is such a joyous feeling!
The same is true in our relationship to God. What overwhelming relief to have peace with God! Paul describes this in Romans 5:1, “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”(NIV) Paul explains this more in verses 9 and 10, “Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!”(NIV)
If you are in Jesus, you can celebrate peace with God! The Holy Spirit works so you can feel this peace in your life!
