“Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 NIV
Today let us simply soak up the truth of our deserved place and our given place.
We deserve Hell. We deserve separation from a Holy and perfect God. We deserve death.
Only by God’s never ending grace, through the gift of Christ, are we given life, restoration, community with God and reconciliation.
We are brought to a place of harmony with God because of Jesus. We couldn’t work our way back and we couldn’t pay our fine. God chose to reconcile us to Him.
Praise God for Jesus today and BE RECONCILED!
Amen! I am reconciled because of the amazing love of Christ too!
I thank God because He is unchangeable, therefore so is my faith. May Jesus keep you brother in Christ
