Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:1-5 NIV

SOOOOOO much great stuff in that one passage.

I'll only comment on "peace with God." It's what everyone in the world is looking for, but so many are looking in all the wrong places. God told us how to find it. Only through faith in his son Jesus. Our faith in the atoning work of Jesus gives us access (what a wonderful word that is) into the grace of God. We are ACCEPTED! And we have peace with God. We are no longer at odds with him because we are forgiven.
