Reconciliation


“God's deepest desire is the reconciliation of His people, yet most do not want Him…Because reconciliation is the healing of our deepest longing, it is never too late to seek it." (Orthodox Study Bible, Matthew 23:37-39, John Ortberg)

“What’s not so popularly understood is that the cross was intended to work two ways: vertically, to heal our irreconcilable differences with God, and horizontally, to heal our irreconcilable differences with each other." (Gary Kinnaman)

“Human beings face two fundamental problems: We are alienated from God and separated from each other. God’s plan of salvation addresses both of these issues. He reconciles us to Himself through the Cross, and He reconciles us to each other in the church." (Colin Smith)

“It is possible to believe in Christ, work hard for his Kingdom, and yet have broken relationships with others who are committed to the same cause. But there is no excuse for remaining unreconciled…When your heart has been cleansed and you have been reconciled to God, you will begin to see a difference in the way you treat others.” (Life Application Study

Bible, Philippians 4:2-3, Deuteronomy 10:16-19)

“Christ’s great act of reconciliation erases human distinctions." (Stephen Mosley)
