Christ’s Ministry of Reconciliation by Ravi Vastrad

Key Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:19 (NLT) 

For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.

Dear Reader,

We are blessed to bring you the Good News of peace and hope. Our theme simple and clear. It is to make God Real and Personal to our reader. And to reveal our Creator as a God of compassion and forgiveness, so that we may know how to relate to Him. Just like a Father and Children have a loving and living relationships. 

First, we need to understand that God is not an object or an image or an imagination of human mind. God is a living and loving Person. His awesome nature and characters are unchanging from generation to generation. We find this amazing truth revealed through the pages of The Holy Bible.  

This is an invitation from God to all humanity. As you keep reading with a humble heart and an open mind; You will surely encounter your Creator today. You don’t need a thousand years for your Salvation (Mukti). You can receive your greatest miracle ‘Mukti’ today. This is the confidence you can have in Christ alone. There is no greater discovery other than to have  a personal revelation of your Creator. 

Let us unpack the Word of God to know His loving purpose to all of us. The letter written by Paul to Corinthian Church is full of practical wisdom to give us an insight into nature and character of God. 

What is the meaning of reconciliation?

Reconciliation, in Christian theology, is an element of salvation that refers to the results of atonement.

John Calvin describes reconciliation as the peace between humanity and God that results from the expiation of religious sin and the propitiation of God’s wrath. 

Therefore it is a situation in which two people or groups of people become friendly again after they have been separated in rebellion.  

Apostle Paul, clearly and skilfully articulates the nature and ministry of Jesus Christ. Therefore, the primary purpose of Lord Jesus was to restore the sinful humanity to a glorious position. By paying the penalty for our sins; Jesus became the “Lamb of God” to die in our place. 

Because there is no forgiveness unless our sins are washed away by the precious blood of Jesus. Through sin death entered into humanity. Therefore Jesus defeated the death. He rose again on the third day to everlasting life and offers the eternal life to all who trust in His forgiveness.  

Christ and His believers have no intentions of converting people from one religion to another. People are changed as they are convicted of their guilt and sins; the Holy Spirit convicts the heart of sinners through the Holy Word of God.

All humans have sinned and fallen short of God’s moral standards of living right. The only way to reconcile the humans, is to cleanse their hearts  through the Blood of Jesus. 

Jesus Christ is the complete and perfect demonstration of this reconciliation; and His work on the Cross is perfectly perfect and completely complete. Nothing can be added to His work by our human efforts. Only true response is to repent and accept His love. The Holy Spirit alone can give  us birth of a new heart; when we trust in Jesus Christ and His perfect sacrifice on the cross for our sins. 

For I am absolutely convinced that seeking and receiving God’s love and mercy is the most significant moment of your life. No religion or tradition can give you an unconditional love; and a supreme love that is offered by Jesus Christ is an invitation to save your soul. Come to Christ today and be reconciled to your true position in God. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. 

To know Jesus as The Lord, mean to know that He is the author of your life. And to walk in His ways mean, that journey through this life by faith in His Word and in His finished work on the Cross. He is the most loving person you will ever know on this planet. His invitation is open to all who seek him with a sincere heart. His mercy is sure to all who put their trust in Him. And His protection is available to all who call on His name. Oh, Taste and see the Lord is good, His ways are perfect and His promises never fail. 

Therefore, we invite you to pray this with a sincere heart;

‘Dear Father God, today I thank you for your word that has touched my heart. I repent of my wrongs and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins, God raised Jesus from the dead for my Mukti (Salvation). Blood of Jesus has reconciled me to the loving relationship with my creator. Now help me to know Jesus more and more so that I can grow in the knowledge of your grace and mercy. Teach me your ways so that I can be person who will learn to honour you and learn to love each other’. Amen
