So, since we have come to be considered righteous by God because of our trust, let us continue to have shalom with God through our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah.
Romans 5:1 CJB
God created mankind to be His family. Sadly, the family connections were broken when Eve and then Adam chose to believe the Liar and eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. God was not opposed to Adam and Eve having knowledge. He didn’t want them to gain the knowledge of good and evil without connection to Him. In their disconnected-from-God condition, they were immediately filled with fear and shame. And so it is for many in the world even to this day.
Those spirits, fear and shame, were not from God. They rush in to any spiritual vacuum to fill it. In the absence of connection with the God of Peace, fear, shame and confusion enter. Humans were not designed to operate effectively in fear, shame and confusion.
Jesus, the Prince of Peace or Shalom, has come to give life to dead people —people disconnected from the Source of Life. He took all the punishment mankind deserved for our wickedness and iniquities, and the result is Peace with God.
In this season of the greatest Christian holiday, the birth of our Savior, Jesus, check yourself out? Do you have peace with God. Do you feel God is at peace with you or are you expecting God to punish you, reject you or withdraw from you? If you don’t have complete Peace with God, you may be listening to the Liar about what your Father in Heaven thinks of you.
If you have come to faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, then your punishment, for all your sins, has been born by Jesus. The debt you owed God for your failure has been paid.
It is unrighteous to seek collection of a paid debt!
God wants you to know how much He loves you and how much He wants to bless you and give you life more abundantly!
