The jury is in

Since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ has done for us. Rom. 5:1

That moment in a courtroom before the jury’s decision is announced is incredibly tense, especially for the defendant. Faith in Christ means the jury is in and the verdict for us is “not guilty.” Whatever we’ve done, whatever guilt we may still feel, Jesus took the fall. He didn’t do that so we’d keep feeling guilty; He did it to bring us peace and restoration.

Lord, help me live in the peace You give.
