Day 5 - Living Out Reconciliation

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

2 Corinthians 5:16-21 (NIV)

16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Reflection:

We are now reconciled with God through Christ.  This means that there has been a restoration of a relationship. In Christ, the old life of sin and not knowing God is gone. We have a new life where are now able to be with God.  As we have received, we also have been entrusted with the ministry of reconciliation. We are to share the blessings of having a restored life with God with one another first, pointing each other back to Christ and believing in the new reality we have in Christ together.

Let us look on one another with eyes of Christ, with His hope and love.  As we are reconciled with God, we are to encourage each other to continually remain in the relationship that Jesus has restored for us.  Let’s take time to pray for or encourage someone today. Jesus is with us and will never fail us. Praise Him.
