Our faith in Jesus transfers God’s righteousness to us and he now declares us flawless in his eyes. This means we can now enjoy true and lasting peace with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has done for us – Romans 5:1 (TPT)
You’re probably a week or two into your summer vacation. Maybe things aren’t just going the way you wanted. Perhaps all your friends went on a school trip and you’re stuck at home babysitting your brother. Yuck!
It can be really easy to lose focus when things aren’t going the way you want them to. You can begin to forget how blessed you really are. So even if your summer vacation isn’t turning out the way you dreamed, you can be encouraged by today’s Bible verse.
Today’s verse tells us that our faith transferred God’s righteousness to us. That means that you are righteous. You’re not trying, hoping or wishing to get righteous. In God’s eyes, you are righteous and flawless. That’s good news! The sin that had once separated you from God no longer has a hold on you.
That truth gives you peace. You might not be excited about your current circumstances, but you can be at peace. You can know that at the end of the day you have value and worth because of what Jesus did. There’s no longer anything holding you back. So today, practice joy in your life. Live at peace because Jesus made you flawless in God’s eyes!
