Have you ever tried to reconcile a broken relationship? It can be painful, messy and uncomfortable. Sometimes, we don’t want to make the first move because it doesn’t seem worth the pain we’d have to endure in order to bring reconciliation.
But thankfully, with humanity, God made the first move. When we rejected Him and sinned against Him, He could have chosen to avoid reconciliation. But He didn’t! Instead, He chose to reconcile us with Himself, even though it would cost Him His Son.
Take some time to thank God for choosing to reconcile with us through sacrificing His son Jesus on the cross for our sins.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
Lord, thank You for choosing to reconcile with us, even while we were still sinners. Thank you for choosing to send Your son, Jesus, as a sacrifice for our sins. Help us to remember this daily. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
