Peace with God – Sermon, preached at One Way Christian Center by Pastor Bryan Walker on October 27, 2013, Broadcasted (scheduled) on KWHW 93.5, “Sanctified in Truth” radio show on November 3rd 2013.
How important is it to have peace with God? Considering God has made all things and he is all powerful, this is very important. There are a few ways to look at the phrase “peace with God.”
1. The internal peace we have with God or the internal restlessness one has when they don’t have peace with God. Do you know of someone (maybe you) who is accomplished but restless? Do you know someone who seems like they have all things but are unhappy? True peace cannot be had until you have peace with God. True peace does not come from the physical things, or things of the world but comes from having peace with God.
2. God having peace with us is very important. God is a God of love but he is also a God of wrath.
3. When we have peace with God we have peace of mind. The accuser can accuse all he wants but as long as we have peace with God our faith stops these attacks.
4. Having peace with God does not mean having peace with the world. Remember the rainbow God gave to Noah? You need two things to have a rainbow, rain and sun. Though we have storms in our life we can look through the storm and see the promise of God in the rainbow.
Rom 5:1-2 ESV Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (2) Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
