“And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach.”1 

Reconciled to God, O glorious thought. I who once was His foe, His enemy, one alienated from Him. I now have been brought into the reality of HIs family. My Lord took the initiative, He sent His Son to shed His blood, thus bringing peace. In the cross, God has declared peace between me and Himself. Now, instead of dread, there is assurance; instead of denial, there is love; instead lostness, there is hope. “I love you, O Lord, for reconciling my soul to You!”

  1. Col 1:21-22 []
