Justified By Faith, We Have Peace With God!
 
There is great revelation that can be understood about the finished work of Christ just by understanding what it truly means to have peace with God.  Peace here means much more than an end to hostility, which is what we normally believe when we hear it.  It is the Hebrew word Shalom.  The Strong's Lexicon defines shalom as safe, that is, (figuratively) well, happy, friendly; also (abstractly) welfare, that is health, prosperity, peace:
 
Shalom has a far more holistic meaning that one would think.  It includes safety, welfare, health, prosperity, peace, etc.  It is to have nothing missing and nothing broken.  So then, one can rightly conclude that Romans 5:1 says, "Therefore having been justified by faith, we have safety, welfare, health, prosperity and peace with God, nothing missing or broken in our lives."  So when we by faith declare that Jesus is our peace we are saying that he's our safety, our welfare, our health, our prosperity and nothing is missing or broken from our lives.  All of this was accomplished by the Lords death, burial, and resurrection.  We have and stand in this grace right now!!  We have been justified by the faith of our Lord NOW REST IN IT!!
