TOPIC OF TREM DEVOTIONAL FOR 1ST APRIL 2020 IS “NO MORE WAR.”
BIBLE TEXT: Romans 5:1 KJV
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ
TREM DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY
There are two types of peace. One is the type that every person who is an unbeliever needs to have because anyone who has not made Christ the Lord of his life is at war with God and he will never win! How can you fight your creator and win?
However, the beauty of it is that you don’t have to fight. God has brought reconciliation through Christ. All you need to do is to accept the reconciliation. When you receive Christ, you receive the reconciliation. This is what the Word is saying in the book of Luke 2:14: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men” (KJV).
The peace the Bible speaks of here is not about serenity. Peace here means the war is over. When Christ came, He came to bring an end to the war that is why it is called peace with God. There is a difference between peace with God and the peace of God. If you don’t have peace with God, you can’t have the peace of God. According to the book of Romans 4:25: Christ “…was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification”(KJV).
Jesus was delivered for our offences so that there will be peace between us and God and then he was raised for our justification. “Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” There is no more war between us and God! Now there is an everlasting relationship!
He enjoys your relationship! Any time you are around Him, the whole heaven stands still because you have arrived. Oh yes, He rolls out the entire carpet because you are valuable to Him. The war that Adam started has ended for every believer.
God is not against you! Stop thinking that God will not do it for you! God is not upset with you. The war is over! What you have done has nothing to do with it. He initiated your salvation!
