Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
This verse teaches me several truths. We have seen our sinfulness and realized our weakness.
We have trusted the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross . God has fully judged sin. He placed our sin upon Christ, our Substitute.
God was and is completely satisfied with Christ’s sacrifice. We understand that He will eternally remain satisfied. He will never take up the judgment of our sin again.
God is therefore at rest about us forever, however poor our understanding of truth, however weak our walk. God is looking at the blood of Christ, and not at our sins.
All claims against us were met when Christ “made peace by the blood of His cross.” So “we have peace with God. Our sins have been nailed to His cross.
That is how we have peace with God. It is the work that God did on Calvary through the death of His Son!
