Reconciliation is possible!

April 19 2020

I belong to myself and I want to control my life. By thinking this way, we deny our Creator access to certain areas of our lives. We close our hearts to him, just as we did back then in paradise. We tried to conceal and cover-up what was truly going on; that’s what separates us from God.

Yet, He comes to us with great mercy. He sent his one and only son to earth, who paid for our transgressions by death on the cross. Jesus, through God, now invites everyone: „‚I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.“ – John 5:24.

On top of that, he empowers us to admit our guilt and ask for forgiveness when we have done wrong. He also shows us how to offer a hand of forgiveness to those who have hurt us. This is how relationships are healed and conflicts are resolved. Forgiveness is a powerful and beautiful thing. Happy is the one who experiences peace through reconciliation and also spreads it!

What is the next step in your reconciliation? Is there someone you need to ask for forgiveness? Or someone you should forgive?

“For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them.”

2 Corinthians 5:19a

Have you reconciled with God?
