You’ve been made right with God through faith in Jesus Christ. Now what? That’s what “therefore” is all about. In Romans 5:1-8, the Apostle Paul shows how peace with God is the outcome of your justification. Not only does this peace fill your present days, but it also extends into the future. Since you’ve been made right with God, even when you’re going through times of suffering, you can live with the certainty that He is present with you and has in store for you a future glory that surpasses anything this world can ever give. How do you know that God will never abandon you? Look to Jesus!
