Reconciled to God

Do you know that God isn’t holding anything against you? He no longer sees you guilty but redeemed through the shed blood of Jesus. God reconciled you to Himself. When you received Jesus as your Savior, God gave you the ministry of reconciliation. He [personally present] in Christ, reconciled and restored the world to favor with Himself — that includes you. He is not counting up and holding against you your trespasses [but canceling them]. God has committed to you the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). Being reconciled to God, you can now take the word of reconciliation to others.

Father, I thank You for saving me from wrath through Christ. If when I was Your enemy, I was reconciled to You through the death of Your Son, much more, having been reconciled, I shall be saved by His life. I also rejoice in You through my Lord Jesus Christ, through whom I have now received reconciliation. I shall rejoice in You and be glad in the name of Jesus. Amen.
