SPIRIT WEEK Part 2: Peace

It’s SPIRIT WEEK Part 2 here on GUWG, where we’re taking an up-close and personal look at each Fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: PEACE.

Peace with God? Sin damages our relationship with God. So, first we need peace with God. That’s exactly why Jesus – the Prince of Peace – came. His sacrifice on the cross wiped out sin’s penalty and gives us access to peace with God by grace through faith (Romans 5:1).
