What “Therefore” Is There For
“As disciples, we have been given the ministry of reconciliation”
When the church returns to the fear and reverence of the Lord, everything we do will be motivated by Him. We will be compelled and apprehended by His love. To truly be the church to the unchurched, one of our main priorities must be seeing unbelievers reconciled back to the Father. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we have been given the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5) and with love and compassion, we will see the lost find their God who chose them first.
“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 ESV
