Phillips: world reconciliation to God

Thursday, March 3, 2011
    All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
    —2 Corinthians 5:18-19 (NIV)
    We are, as God’s “ambassadors,” ... cheerfully and constantly to bear our share of the cost of that work of reconciliation. In all humility, we can say that ... God is in every true Christian “reconciling the world unto Himself.”
    ... J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), Making Men Whole, London: Highway Press, 1952, p. 43 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to proclaim Your message of reconciliation by word and life.
