Peace comes by trusting in Christ

Peace comes by trusting in Christ

Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ro 5:1

Charles Stanley tells of asking a waitress, “If you could ask God for anything, what would that be?” Instantly she answered, “I want to feel at peace.” Through tears she spoke of painful losses that turned her life into intense emotional turmoil.

Many people, like this young woman, want inner peace without a relationship with Jesus, the Prince of Peace. They seek it in ways that don't work—physical fitness, improving their appearance, financial security, fame, social status, or human relationships. Some seek it in alcohol and drugs. But none of these things can provide peace of heart and mind; only a relationship with Jesus can do that.

Before we meet Jesus we are slaves to sin, living in opposition to God (See Ro 6:16 NIV). And our sins separate us from God so we live with guilt, stress, and shame. But He has provided a remedy. “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Ro 5:8 NIV), removing our sin, guilt, and shame, and ending our separation from God.

When we trust in Christ as our Savior He promises, “Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ro 5:1 NIV).

If you have placed your trust in Christ, read this: “Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs and don't forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand” (Php 4:6-7 TLB).

因相信基督而得平安

我們既因信稱義,就藉著我們的主耶穌基督得與 神相和。」羅馬書5:1

查爾斯•史丹利(Charles Stanley)說他曾經問一位女服務生:「你若能向神求任何事,你會求什麼?」她毫不猶豫地回答:「我希望感到平安。」她流著淚談到令她痛苦的喪失,讓她的人生充滿激烈的混亂情緒。

許多人也像這位年輕女士一樣,想要內在的平安,卻沒有和耶穌──和平的君──建立關係。他們用無效的方式尋求:身體健康、改善外貌、財務保障、名聲、社會地位或人際關係。有些人在酒精和毒品中尋求,但是這些東西當中,沒有一樣能使心懷意念平安,唯有與耶穌建立關係才能做到。

在我們與耶穌相遇之前,我們是罪的奴僕,與神為敵(見羅馬書6:16)。我們的罪使我們與神隔離,所以我們活在罪惡感、壓力和羞恥中,但是祂提供了補救辦法:「惟有基督在我們還作罪人的時候為我們死, 神的愛就在此向我們顯明了。」(羅馬書5:8)

基督除去我們的罪、罪惡感和羞恥,使我們不再與神隔離。當我們相信基督為我們的救主時,祂應許:「我們既因信稱義,就藉著我們的主耶穌基督得與神相和。」(羅馬書5:1)

你若已相信基督,讀這段話:「應當一無掛慮,只要凡事藉著禱告、祈求,和感謝,將你們所要的告訴神。神所賜、出人意外的平安必在基督耶穌裡保守你們的心懷意念。」(腓立比書4:6-7)
