We are at peace with God, the Father, as a result of the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us when He came to earth to fulfill the will of God. Through faith, which is expressed through receiving salvation and submitting to Jesus Christ, acknowledging Him as Lord and Savior of our lives, we activate that personal reconciliation with God. We have to make an active and conscious decision to be saved. It won’t fall on us from the sky. The Bible states, in Romans 10:9-10, that the one who confesses with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and they believe in their heart that God raised Him from the dead then he will be saved.
This all has to do with the actions we take to affirm our salvation. Confessing and, most importantly, believing the Gospel in our hearts. Through Jesus Christ, we have access to the grace that we did not merit in any way. This grace is what has made us children of God. It is by grace we can look at our futures with eager expectation of the glory that is to come. It is because of Jesus Christ, and the peace that we have with God, that we can rejoice and be steadfast in times of trials ad tribulations. Instead of shaking and cowering away, we stand boldly because we know that God is with us. Our hearts are strengthened during the challenges we face.
We build up patience so that the next time a similar trial comes our way, we will confidently endure. That is what we call experience. Experience is when we are familiar with a situation that has come our way. We won’t shake or fret as much. If anything, we will be far more confident because we know that we got out of it the first time, we will get out of it again. This is what we call hope. Knowing that we are safe in the loving embrace of God, never to fail or fall away. Christ is the source of our strength. In Him, we can face all things, boldly knowing that we will come out just fine.
