A beautiful song . . . so apt to sing in times of provocation, irritation, stress at home, at work, or on the road . . . works like "spiritual ibuprofen," if you will. Jesus does it all! And remember to put on the full armor of God * each and every day. (*Ephesians 6:10-18)

Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation." Romans 5:6-11
