In Christ We Find Peace With God

In Christ We Find Peace With God

Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Christ In You

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: peace, reconciliation, relationship with god, salvation

If one of Paul’s early metaphors pertains to God’s wrath, it is appropriate that another of his images of salvation speaks about peace. Thanks to the work of Jesus on the cross, his followers can move from being God’s enemies to being God’s children, a situation that results in their having peace with God. This is Reconciliation. It is the reestablishing of a relationship, once broken but now restored. The Christian life is about lots of things, but one of the most rewarding is the daily presence and walk with God, our Father, as we live in right relationship with Him. (2 Cor 5:17-21; Rom 5:9-11; Col 1:20-21; Eph 2:16-18)
