In my morning prayer time or sometimes just throughout the day, God will give me words to contemplate. This week He gave me the word reconciliation.

The dictionary defines reconciliation as: and act of reconciling or the state of being reconciled. The process of making consistent or compatible.

The word itself denotes that there is a separation between to parties. In this case, my sins have separated me from God. What's beautiful is that He is not happy with that separation and so He initiates making the relationship right. Wow. Can you imagine that? I sinned against Him and He initiates making things right. What a lesson on how God expects us to treat others.

The idea of inconsistency and incompatibility can definitely be seen in the life of an unconverted person. How exciting it is that God wants me to be compatible with Him and consistent in my relationship with Him.

He placed a few verses on my mind for contemplation. 2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.'

God, through Christ, is reconciling the world to Himself. He doesn't want to count against me the things that I have done wrong. He wants to be able to see Christ in me the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)
