2 Corinthians 5:19 (NKJV) that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Reconciliation is defined as the restoration of friendly relations by making one view or belief compatible with another. So, it could be said that reconciliation is the ministry of changing one’s view. But who’s view is changing when it comes to our relationship with God? God never changes. God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. God is forever the same. The Apostle Paul says “that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself.” Who has changed? It is the world that has been changed. But as we look at the world today, we see that there are good people and there are bad people. But God looks deeper than the things that people do. If we would look into their heart and soul, we would see that all people are sinners. But it is through the Lord Jesus Christ that all people are reconciled to God through the death of Jesus Christ His Son. But this change is not forced upon people. To be reconciled with God, you must accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Then and only then will you be reconciled with God. For you see, the change is not of our own doing. Meaning to say that our good works on our best day will never be enough to set us right with God, because of sin. Sin has to be dealt with, and nothing of our own doing can pay the penalty for sin. Only the Cross of Christ can. The death of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is what reconciled all people to God. Jesus paid it all. All to Him we owe. The change my friends comes from the righteousness of Christ. And the only way to be covered by the righteousness of Christ is to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. God has reconciled all people unto Himself through the work that Christ has done on the Cross. God has made a way for us to be reconciled with Him. And that way is through Jesus Christ alone by faith alone. It is important to notice and understand that we are reconciled unto God, and not the other way around. God is not reconciled, for God has not changed His mind about sin. God will not turn a blind eye to it, He will not ignore it, and He will not play it down. Sin has to be dealt with. And God has dealt with it by the substitutional sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. Because the Lord Jesus Christ paid the penalty for the sins of all people. That is because Christ died for us, God now can extend His grace to us. Friend, God has His arms outstretched to a world of lost sinners. And you can come to God because of what the Lord Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV). God loves you. God wants you to live, that is why Christ died for us. And God the Father was pleased with His Son’s sacrifice. And so, God raised His Son from the grave on the third day. And He has given Him a name above all names. We are reconciled unto God by the shed blood of Jesus. “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 NKJV). My friend, accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and be reconciled with God.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
