Bible Reading: Romans 5:1-11
Monday, May 25, 2015
One of Frances’ hymns, “Like a River Glorious,” talks about how we can have peace through all our experiences in life. Here are some words from the last verse of this song: “Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest. Finding as He promised, perfect peace and rest.”
In our Bible Reading today, Paul tells us about God’s peace. Paul says that we have this peace because of “the blood sacrifice of Christ” (verse 9b). Paul continues to say that when we have this peace, we are God’s friends.
God’s peace has helped me face difficulties in my life. I hope that you will experience God’s peace today. He loves you and wants to be your friend! — BH
“And not only will we be saved, but we also rejoice right now in what God has done for us through our Lord Jesus Christ. It is because of Jesus that we are now God’s friends.” Romans 5:11
PRAYER: Lord, I trust You to give me Your perfect peace. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
