// Read II Corinthians 5:17-21 //
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin[b] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
If anyone is in Christ Jesus, he is a new creation! This is what happened to Saul turned Paul. After the new birth, he became a reconciler, reconciling people to God through Jesus Christ. We too at new birth are new creations, old things gone and we must become reconcilers too.
PRAYER: Pray for grace to be effective in the ministry of reconciliation given to you at birth.
