WE ARE RECONCILED
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old
things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Brothers, our old ways of sin are passed away. We are new creatures in Christ Jesus. We are now in this world, but we are not of this world.
all things are of
God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us
the ministry of reconciliation;
Know this truth my brothers. God has reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ. We are now of God just as all things are of God. We are reconciled unto God!
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. 20 Now
then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For
he hath made him to be sin
for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Not only are we reconciled to God by Jesus our Lord, but he who died for our sins, did also make us righteous. Praise God!
God bless you my brothers.
