Peace With God
“Without FAITH it is impossible to please God,” Hebrews 11:6. Yes, that is the truth. Because sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin. In this way, death spread to all because we’re all sinners. In other words, we are enemies of God because of sin. We are eternally separated from God.
Therefore, a peace treaty is necessary to make peace again with God, and it is through faith. “Therefore, since we have been justified through FAITH, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus,” (Romans 5:1).
But what is FAITH? It is an assurance of this hope for, the evidence of things unseen. Godly men and women in the Old Testament were accounted righteous by God, not by good works they did, simply believing in God. (Read Hebrews 11).
How do I have faith? Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Read Romans 10).
Being saved is a gift of God. “For by grace you have been saved through FAITH, and that is not of ourselves, it is the gift of God. Not of works, so that no one would boast,” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
The only peace treaty we could have is through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Without FAITH, it is impossible to please God.
