Enemies Reconciled to God

In this episode Jesse is back with us to discuss how we (maybe unknown to ourselves) are enemies of God in need of reconciliation. This is the wonderful salvation in Jesus that we might have peace with God.

Key verse: “For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.” Romans 5:10
