“For God in all His fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through Him God reconciled everything to Himself. He made peace with everything in Heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.”
Have you ever been in a situation when you feel distant from a loved one through either a disagreement or conflict? If yes, then you will know that there is no worse feeling. When there is tension between you and the ones you love, there is an empty, lost and dejected emotion that rises in our hearts. It is a horrible feeling. The distance almost seems unrepairable. Yet when there is reconciliation, forgiveness and restoration, there is no better feeling. The hurts and pain are forgiven, as you are reconciled once more with your loved ones. As Eddie Murphy sung in the film, ‘coming to America’, there is no better feeling than to be loved!!
Our sins and wrongdoings also separated us from Christ’s wonderful love. Yet when the fullness of God came in Christ Jesus, through His blood and death on the cross, the whole of creation was once again reconciled back to God. Our sins forgiven and our debt paid. If you don’t yet know His love and forgiveness, then don’t stay living in the emptiness of separation, but accept His love and enjoy being in a reconciled relationship with the Creator of the Earth. Live in true peace with a God that loves you with an unmeasurable love.
