For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son,
much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:10
The word “reconcile” means literally “bring into a changed relationship.” It means to bring together two parties who should have been together all along, but have become separated. The Bible speaks of the human race as enemies of God. You may say that you are no “enemy” of God, but according to the Bible we are either passive or active enemies of God, apart from Christ. Reconciliation means “brought back into full relationship and fellowship with God.” This is what Christ accomplished on the cross. What a thrilling thought! What a thrilling fact!
Your cross, dear Saviour, brings me to my knees in humble gratitude. Thank You, for forgiving all the past and giving me strength to live each day in Your power. Amen.
