Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We have been justified! The rich, theological word is one we need to understand in order to grasp our identity in Christ. “Justify” is a legal term that carries two significant truths. “Not Guilty!” As a sinner, I stand before God without a prayer.

I realize some men will deduct several “man card” points for me saying this, but I actually had a lot of fun yesterday.  (For those of you who deducted those points, let me clarify that the fu»

2 Corinthians 5:17-20 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation . . . We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. At one time, I was an enemy of God. My back was turned on him and I was headed in a different direction.
