2 Corinthians 5:18

Published August 19, 2020 by Pastor Ron West in Pastor's Thoughts

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,2 Corinthians 5:18

Its amazing what God’s grace does for us. Although we are sinful, we can be brought into a relationship with God through simple faith in Jesus. Because He died on the cross in our place, God blots out the record of our sins and makes us right with Him. The Lord in His amazing love has not only forgiven us but has also given to us “the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18). We have the honor of sharing the good news with others so that they too can be at peace with God. And when we are right with God, we are also to do what we can to live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:18). Have you accepted God’s offer of forgiveness in Christ? Are you telling others about His love? And are you an agent of God’s grace in your relationships? Start today—make peace.
