"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.” II Corinthians 5:19
IN JESUS TODAY:
Here we find a willing God, what is he willing to do? God is willing to come to us and offer repair, repair for a relationship that has been broken by our actions of sin. Sin has separated our friendship, it has made more than a perforation in God’s covenant to us so that it has become torn. God is willing to repair though by offering Jesus his only begotten Son to be the instrument of repair. God decides to not count our sin against us by offering the blood of Jesus as a payment for our sins. This is how much he loves us! As we read,
“For God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
So many will say why would a loving God offer up his Son in such a horrible way? Here it is! Here is the answer to that why. God did it so that we could be reconciled to himself, and Jesus through his obedience to God his Father became God’s instrument of repair.
WE MUST EMBRACE THIS OFFER…
God has set an offer in front of us all, an offer to reconcile with him, there is no more effort to be made except to accept his offer. And for all who accept he restores this covenant, this great friendship, and all of the promises that were once lost because of our sins against him.
Now that we have accepted this offer we are called to become ministers of this same reconciliation, it is the entire World that this offer is made to, not only us, not only you, but to all. God has committed unto us the responsibility of the ministry of the message of reconciliation. It now becomes our duty to offer this instrument of repair, even Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son to the World around us. The fix is in! For all who believe the offer stands! Forgiveness through the blood of Jesus! If there was ever a great action thriller, if the title named “THE RECONCILER” belonged to anyone, here it is, our great God has made to all an intense offer that we must embrace! Jesus is the instrument of repair, the substitute for our sin debt.
S.I.R. Jesus. The Substituted, The Imputed or The Assigned, and the Great Reconciler. Jesus our Lord!
THERE IS FORGIVENESS THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS, GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON!
