Romans5.1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
When you reject God, you are at war with the God of Heaven. God has prepared a way of peace to end the war. He sent His son Jesus Christ to pay the price of sin. Christ died for the sin of all mankind. Christ will take each person’s sin, but there are conditions written in the peace treaty. You must surrender first.
You must accept God’s peace conditions, and His first condition is that you must accept His Son as your King. You can no longer be King over yourself…if you do not want God’s conditions, than Christ does not want your sin. If you will take Christ as your King, Christ will take your sin. Christ than stands on your behalf before God and saves you from God’s wrath against sin.
It is now easy to see belief and faith is not about science and evolution, philosophy and reason, or even misunderstanding the Bible; it is about surrender. God did not say read the Bible to understand the peace treaty, God did not say understand all of science to understand the peace treaty, and God did not say turn to philosophy and reason to understand the peace treaty. The sky above and the world around is enough to know God.
God said it is pride that keeps you from accepting Him. God wants to make peace with you, but you do not want to lose the pride…it’s just that simple.
Psalm10.4 In the pride of his face the wicked does not seek him; all his thoughts are, “There is no God.”
