The Gift of Reconciliation
And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
During this Christmas season, you might receive gifts from loved ones, friends, neighbors, and co-works, but the greatest gift you can ever accept this year is the gift of reconciliation. If you are already a Christian, this time of year should be a joyous time, not because of the earthly gifts you might receive, but because of the eternal gift you have received from Jesus Christ. The gift of reconciliation is that God brings us back together in harmony with Him. Sin separated us from God, and because we are all born sinners, we must receive His gift and be washed in His blood. This gift that God offers to us is a gift that was purchased by Jesus' shed blood. This gift is a wonderful gift because without it, we would not have true joy, hope, and peace, and without this gift, we would not know where we would spend eternity. So many people try in their own strength to earn these or find these in the world, and yet it is all in vain because all we have to do is simply receive the gift of salvation to be filled with His love, joy, peace, and His presence. You have a God in Heaven who loves you and gives you this wonderful gift of reconciliation.
