The Peace of Christmas

The Peace of Christmas

The Peace of Christmas     Christ makes Peace with God for us (Romans 5:1-10) Rom. 5:1 ¶        Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Rom. 5:2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Rom. 5:3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; Rom. 5:4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. Rom. 5:5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Rom. 5:6 ¶        You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Rom. 5:7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. Rom. 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom. 5:9 ¶        Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! Rom. 5:10 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! a) While we were sinners Christ died for us b) While we were enemies, we’ve been reconciled  2. Christ leaves us the Peace of God though the Spirit (John 14:26-27) a) By sending The Spirit to be with us forever   b) By leaving an otherworldly kind of peace    3. Christ calls us to make every effort to be at peace with all men (Hebrews 12:14)
