“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”
~ Romans 5:1 (NKJV)
The plan of salvation by Christ reveals God as willing to be reconciled. He is ready to pardon, and to be at peace. If the sinner repents and believes, God can now consistently forgive him, and admit him to favor. It is therefore a plan by which the mind of God and of the sinner can become reconciled, or united in feeling and in purpose. The obstacles on the part of God to reconciliation, arising from his justice and Law, have been removed, and he is now willing to be at peace. The obstacles on the part of man, arising from his sin, his rebellion, and his conscious guilt, may be taken away, and he can now regard God as his friend.
~ Albert Barnes, Notes on the Whole Bible

I am so glad that there is a plan for salvation and that He is willing to be reconciled. Thank God that He makes a way for us where we don’t have to perish, but rather, He promises that nothing can pluck us out of His hand. Good word for today!

Lifted guilt is a humbling, and grateful experience. Thank The Lord that He does this for us, through our faith in Him! And, thanks to The Holy Spirit that we are moved to seek Him.
