Notice Paul writes that this peace comes about “in Christ Jesus”. Before we can ever have the peace of God in our hearts and minds, we must first have peace with God. This is the relationship Paul writes about in Romans 5:1, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ…” Because of our sin, we are enemies of God and under His wrath.
