Scripture: Romans 5:9-11
Romans 5:9-11 says, “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” Isn’t it interesting that the fruit of remission is reconciliation and a maturing relationship with the Father. The fruit of that relationship is walking worthy which establishes peace with God, then nothing is impossible to us! Again, this is something that takes time. Short-cuts produce their own problems as Abraham discovered with Sarah languishing in Pharaoh’s tent. May God, help us walk the pattern and surrender to the process! The key word in all of this is persevere! If we persevere, we will grow into the full measure of freedom needed in all God has ordained for us. Are we growing, are we committed to the path? Reconciliation is the fruit of remission and if we never grow into reconciliation, then we never experience the full measure of peace with God. Do we have peace with God? If not, we need to be serious about getting back on the growth path so that it can develop. Freedom and peace are already bought and paid for but we must willingly submit to the process and persevere! God is working His will in us to do His good pleasure!
