Sunday Reflection: Peace with God!

We have all declared war on God by our sin, and entered into cosmic rebellion. This is all the worse as it is against, "a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness" (Exodus 34:6).

When you surrender to God, you must come to him with the cross of Christ as your white flag.

There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. - Acts 4:12
When you surrender to God you are truly victorious, that is, over your chief enemy which is your sin, and the misery and death it brings.
For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death....The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. - I Corinthians 15:25-26, 56-57
Another word of peace and grace and hope from God:
For in him (that is, the Lord Jesus) all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. - Colossians 1:19-20 (all quotations from the English Standard Version)
