God has Reconciled You, Through Jesus, so Be Reconciled to God

Reconciliation is seldom used in our daily vocabulary today. Its meaning is to reestablish a close relationship, to settle or resolve, to make compatible and to bring (oneself) to accept.

When the bible talks about reconcile, the word is used in all aspects of the meaning.

Jesus paid the penalty for sin, and reconciled the world to himself, not counting yours, mine and the world's sins against people. Additionally, he also provided the means for people to have a close relationship between God and man.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 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 5:17-19

God now, requires people to believe it, by faith. This is the part where a person accepts the finished work on the cross. God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself. Now believe it.
We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:19-21
So, be reconciled. Reconcile your way of thinking with God's way of thinking. Make your thoughts his thoughts.

This is not rocket science folks. Reconciliation is such a beautiful term, especially as it is described in the bible. If you are trying to reconcile yourself, you are not believing God when the bible clearly teaches that you have already been reconciled.

Once again, the good news is you have been reconciled. Shout it out. God is not counting your sins against you! God is not counting my sins against me!
