Barth: the new era

Tuesday, May 5, 2015
    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)
    [The Kingdom of God] is the reconciliation of the world to God. And here is the consequence of this reconciliation: a new world, a new aeon, a new heaven, and a new earth, which are new because they are surrounded by the peace of God... The end and purpose of the world is the coming of the Kingdom.
    ... Karl Barth (1886-1968), Prayer, Westminster John Knox Press, 2002, p. 35 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 5:18-19; Ps. 29:11; 85:8; Matt. 26:64; Mark 13:26; Luke 21:27; John 14:27; Acts 10:36;
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are our reconciliation.
