The Divine Son - Reconcile



We who have accepted Christ's reconciliation have two things we must do with it.

Christ has reconciled us to God. Now we who have accepted that reconciliation have two things that we must do with it. On the one hand, we should offer that reconciliation to those about us, to the world. On the other hand, we should live as reconciled people. A person who is justified by faith may not necessarily act as a friend of God, and Paul in Second Corinthians encouraged us to act as friends of God every day.

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 Cor. 5).

We have this ministry of reconciliation and we should make it a point to tell non-Christians that we serve a God who is not keeping score on them. He is not counting their trespasses against them. Instead, he is waiting for them to trust his Son, and as he waits, he has a friendly and loving attitude towards the people of this world. We should too.
