What Makes You Happy - Part 3

Peace With God

Happy people are at peace with:
- Themselves        
- Others        
- God

Peace with God paves the way to peace with ourselves and equips us to make peace with others.

Do for others as your heavenly Father, through Jesus, has done for you.

The conflict:
- Sin        
- Your sin

Something can be absolutely unfair and true at the same time.

When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. Romans 5:12 NLT

For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.   Colossians 1:13 NLT

Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.    Romans 5:1 NLT

Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.  Romans 5:2 NLT

God's love is too strong to simply go along.

So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth.  1 John 1:6 NLT

Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.  We love each other because he loved us first.    1 John 4:18-19 NLT

If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?  1 John 4:20 NLT

Peace with God begins with faith in Jesus.

Peace with God is sustained by submission to Jesus.

Have you made peace with God?

Are you at peace with God?
