Because I believe Christ died on the cross and rose from the dead, I am reconciled to God. To be reconciled means to be brought into a right relationship with someone that you had been in opposition to or opposed to for some reason. The reason we were in opposition to God is because of our sin. God is pure and holy and cannot have a relationship with anything that is unholy or sinful. In Romans 5:10-11 Paul puts it this way, “ For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.” Through Jesus’ death on the cross he made it possible for us to be reconciled to God through faith in Him. He returned us to a place of favor in God’s sight. What a wonderful Savior we have in Jesus!
Does your life reflect the reconciliation made possible by Jesus? Do you cherish the relationship you have with God? Do you seek to know Him through His Word and talk with Him each day in prayer? It is an amazing fact that the God of the universe desires to have a relationship with you. Thank you Jesus for making this possible.
Eternally grateful for Jesus’ work of reconciliation,
