Daily devotional: Peace with God

Scripture
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.
Romans 5:1-2a NIV

Observation
How awesome that God loved us so much that He sent His Son to die for us to take away the penalty for our sins, and He raised Jesus back to life to justify us (Romans 4:25). What an amazing gift without equal is having peace with God! And He didn't stop there--He also has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us (Romans 5:5)!

Application
Give thanks to the One who remembered us in our low estate (Psalm 136:23)! Revel in this peace, love, forgiveness, and reconciliation we have through faith in Jesus with the God who made all and rules over all!

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you so much for Your plan and for Your love for me. Thank you, Jesus, for carrying out the Father's plan and for Your great sacrifice of love for us while we were yet sinners. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for pouring out Your love into my heart! I revel in this undeserved grace and mercy You have lavished on me!
