Have you ever had a
strained relationship? Did you ever get reconciled?
So here's our
definition of the ministry of reconciliation. God reconciled the
world to himself. The way he did that was by not counting our sins
against us. God is just. He can't forget our sin and remain who he
is. He came up with a plan. Jesus would take the penalty for
And we would be
trusted with the message of reconciliation. Every one of us who has
been reconciled, has experienced that reconciliation and can pass
it along. We can't give much when we haven't been given much. The
more of our reconciliation we experience, the greater the
likelihood God will use us in a service of reconciliation.
When we focus on doing
the best for others, we begin the service of reconciliation. We
must get where we can be outwardly focused all the time. And I
don't think anyone can do that totally, but Jesus did. We'll be
getting better at it for eternity. We can start practicing today.
And we get joy, we walk in our eternal lives, when we learn to put
others ahead of ourselves.
What a great topic at
Christmas. Why not begin your ministry of reconciliation today.
