Day 6 synopsis:

Blessed is the woman of peace and reconciliation.

The strength and joy of the Lord will be hers.

 

What did you think of when I said “peace and reconciliation?”  Yes, that means we’re going to talk today about forgiveness.  I think I just heard a collective sigh.

Let’s read from 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 to study further:

“…If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 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. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.  God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

The sub-title over these verses is “The Ministry of Reconciliation”, and these verses were written to the church.  We’ve all been given this ministry.

In these verses we are being asked to consider extending the same level of forgiveness to others as has been given to us.  We didn’t deserve it, but we are recipients of it, and the least we can do is extend it to others.  Our entire foundation as Christians is built on forgiveness.  Why do we struggle with it so much?

Think on this tenet of our faith today… thank you for joining us!

 

Blessed is the woman of peace and reconciliation.

The strength and joy of the Lord will be hers.
