"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ"  (Rom. 5:1).

Peace is often sought after by man, but often hard to find.  There are groups who stated that they with the peace movement.  There are other groups and even politicians who are avidly seeking world peace through negotiations at peace tables today, as in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians.  However, peace will not be resolved until the Prince of peace comes back on the scenes to be that person of peace in these tumultuous situations.  Jesus Christ is His name!

As a Christian, our peace is found within, NOT from peace negotiations without.  We were initially separated from our Father through sin.  Our Father hates sin.  We could not have a relationship or any fellowship with our Heavenly Father because of this sin separation gap between us (Eph. 2:12-14).  Through love, Jesus Christ came and willingly gave His life and became the sin sacrifice for us on the cross.  Christ's finished work on the cross has now reconciled us with the Father (Eph. 2:15-16). It was all due to His precious shed BLOOD (Eph. 2:13).  Paul said that Christ reconciled all things to the Father, having made peace through the blood of His cross.  It is the precious blood of Jesus that covered all sins.  It is the grace of the blood of Jesus, that has covered every sin, and through His body even the law that was against us before our Father (Eph. 2:15; Col 2:14).

So, Christ IS our peace (Eph. 2:14).  That is more than just bringing peace to us.  Christ is Himself the Prince of peace and the person of peace to live in us.  Christ will reveal and open up everything of the Father to us for fellowship and communion.  Christ is the person of true peace, who has established peace with God for us forever and ever!
