Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Our Peace - The Prince Of Peace - The Just Judge - The Praise Of God - The Perfection Of God
Now all things [are] of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
Since we’re all conceived as sinners, we’re born as enemies of God! God is pure and righteous. We are corrupt, and fall short of His glory. We are unable to dwell in His presence, and are condemned. Reconciliation refers to the restoration of friendly relations - peace. It describes compatibility. We were restored by Jesus as the Prince of Peace. His judgment upon sin, through His atoning death, unites us with the Father, instead of being His enemy. We have been made compatible with God, since His direction of peace, comes by the indwelling of His Spirit. Our praise and thanks is expressed, when we speak this truth to anyone that will listen!
