Life with Christ

In Rom 16-18, Paul says the sinners life is mark by two things.  Ruin and misery.  Only the Lord can reverse this downward trend.  The way of peace they do not know.  How can you know the way of peace when you reject the author and finisher of peace?  Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace.  There is no fear of God before their eyes.  When a person is a sinner they have neither respect or reverence for God.  "They do not know they are sinners in the hands of an angry God," as Jonathan Edwards puts it.  What a way to live, without peace and heading to a lost eternity.  Ruin and misery is no way to live but the wonderful thing is that they can come to Christ.  Today tell those in your world the good news of salvation and redemption and see a life restored.  True peace and life come through Jesus Christ.  He alone is the way, the truth and the life.  Life with Christ is so much better than life without Him.
