A Line From Us

“Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” (2 Cor 5:18).

Reconciliation is the act of turning a relationship of enmity into one of peace. Man’s greatest need is to be reconciled to God, and the holy God has already initiated that process with sinful mankind. You can read more about this in Reconciliation.

This restoration of a sinner to God is no empty ritual, for it results in a gradual but definite change in his life, what the Bible calls Putting on the New Man. Being redeemed by God also means the Christian will take active steps to redeem relationships with others; “Why is it that You Hardly Play with Me?” brings out this truth anecdotally.

The Christian must also remember that “God … gave us the ministry of reconciliation”.  A City Set on a Hill Cannot be Hidden proposes how we ought to do evangelism, and Does it Matter What you Believe? spells out the message we are to proclaim.

My God Sustaineth Me
is the remarkable story of how God reconciled one woman to Himself; and The Praying Mantis, in a light-hearted way, reminds us of the wonders of this great and merciful God.
