Have you ever heard someone speaking about getting right with God or making your peace with God? These are phrases we might not hear as much as in the past, but the idea of knowing where we stand with God is still important to many people.

Some might suggest that we just try our best to be good, treat others well, pay our taxes, and work hard. The Bible addresses the subject differently. In the Bible we are told that in order to have peace with God we must come to Jesus Christ.

The Bible says that “he is our peace, and he has taken down the wall that existed between us and God.” (Ephesians 2:14) When Jesus died on the cross, he made the way for us to come to God. We come by way of the cross.
