The theme of this passage is reconciliation; specifically reconciliation with God. We have examples of this in three ares: marriage, family and friendship. God is the perfect husband. He is always faithful, always loves and we are completely secure in Him. We see the image of adoption. Jesus was the perfect son and as children of God, we inherit his blessing. We are reconciled with God through Jesus. And lastly, as Jesus friends', we share intimately with him and are reconciled to God. We were once enemies. God gave his Son and he sends his Spirit to help us understand His Son. We have been justified, therefore, we have peace with God.
