1 John 4:9-10 CSB – 9 God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his one and only Son into the world so that we might live through him. 10 Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

God initiated.

God accomplished.

God revealed his love.

 

2 Corinthians 5:17-19 CSB – 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come! 18 Everything is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 19 That is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and he has committed the message of reconciliation to us.

Not just a patch over a hole.

Not just a temporary fix.

New creation. The old dead.

Everything is from God. He reconciled. He gave. He forgave. He commissioned.

Hallelujah!

I want to know what you think!
