|Colossians 1:22 – “But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation”|
This Scripture is a simple yet timelessly elegant message of reconciling with the LORD. Although Jesus’s death and resurrection occurred over 2,000 years ago, it is both humbling and reassuring to consider that the promises Jesus brought forth remain unchanged.
If we rely on our own strength, intellect and abilities, we are woefully inept for reconciling our shortcomings with our Heavenly Father. Even if diligently trying to avoid the pitfalls of sin, the Scripture says “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
What a burden is lifted when we acknowledge that reconciliation is possible through Jesus’s death and resurrection. In doing so, we walk in freedom and peace because our heavenly Father sees us as pure and unblemished.
His beautiful promise of reconciliation is steadfast, for Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today and forever.
