Reconciliation = Our Motivation; Which Leads to Our Actions
As “New Creatures” we have a task at hand and it is one of grave importance. “New Creatures” are bearers of reconciliation. We carry it around, it becomes a lifestyle, and it is embedded in our bones. It should be active and manifested in our lives daily.
So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. Image And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” –2 Corinthians 5:16-20 NLT
This should now be our mission: To go out and introduce others to “The Reconciler of our Souls!” We Your carry this imprinted (on our hearts) mission around with us, we show other individuals why they need God, and more precisely why they need Jesus losartan 100 mg.
Looking at chapter five here in 2 Corinthians, it sums up the “duty” of the one who has been reconciled unto God. We were “little kings” on our own little thrones, and this just breeds destruction, captivity, and all the wrong things in life. So, Reconciliation = Motivation and which leads to our Actions.
This is the Kingdom among us: That we partner up with what God is doing, right where we are! Knowing our previous stance with God, and now being in good-standing with His, should be our motivation. Motivated and fueled by this knowledge, should be manifested in our actions.
- Think about why it is important, as followers and disciples of The Christ that we go out with this mission in mind.
- Consider that this is the “Season of Reconciliation.” It is the season of giving, of joy, of hope, of peace, and all of these can be summed up in reconciliation.
- Why is this the “duty” of all Followers and Disciples of Jesus? Also, consider the new knowledge that have as our Motivation that fuels our actions.
Lord, help us to gain access to a clearer picture of the “duty” we have in front of us. May this be our motivation that leads to action for the sake of Your Name. Thank You for the opportunity to partner with You in what You are doing.
