Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/26/17

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself…”  (2 Cor. 5:18-19 NRSV)

He who loves us has redeemed us. He has paid the price that we could not pay; He made the sacrifice that we could not make; He laid down His life for our life. Though we were sinners and undeserving of His great love, we have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ, for in Christ we are reconciled to the Almighty, our sins are forgiven and not held against us. We are restored to be children of the Most High God. We are lifted up that we might come into His presence with open hearts and contrite spirits; that we might bow down and worship Him who gave His only begotten son that we might know the power and beauty of His mercy and grace; that we might then know Him who loves us with an everlasting love.

May the Lord bless you through Christ again this day.
