Peace and Hope
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, wehave peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1
On the one hand, we are complete in Christ. On the other hand, we are growing in Christ. At one and the same time we feel both the presence of Christ and pressures of sin. We enjoy the peace that comes from being made right with God, but we still face daily problems that often help us to grow more in Christ.
