Walking in Peace
Rom 5:1 Therefore having been justified out of faith, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ, (2) Through whom also we have obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand and boast because of the hope of the glory of God.
Words of Ministry
Since we have been justified by faith and stand in the realm of grace, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Paul does not say that we have peace with God, but peace toward God. This means that we are still on the way toward God. We have not finished our journey. In the spiritual world, we first enter the gate and then walk along the way. Justification by faith is the opening of the gate, giving us an access, an entry into a wide field of enjoyment. Once we have passed through the gate of justification, we need to walk the way of peace. Sinners have no peace. Romans 3:17 says that when we were sinners we did not know the way of peace. Today, however, we are walking in the way of peace. If you are moving in a certain direction and do not sense the peace within, you should stop. Always go along with the peace. Young people, after you are saved you must go your way in peace. Wherever you go, you must take the way of peace. If you have no peace, do not go. Whatever you do, do it in peace. If you have no peace, do not act. Grace is for our stand, and peace is for our walk. If you do not have the grace to stay in a certain place, do not stay there. If you have no peace to take a certain direction, do not walk. Stand in grace and walk in peace.
