√ Peace with God.
(Romans 5:1 NLT) Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.
(Romans 8:31-39 NLT) What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?… nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
