As I type this word, reconciliation, I ponder what it means--
truly. We are currently preparing a Christmas Cantata and
the theme of Christmas is that God became flesh that we
might be reconciled to the living God.

Reconciliation from Webster's 1825 dictionary:
Reconcile: To conciliate anew; to call back into union
and friendship the affections which have been alienated;
to restore to friendship or favor after estrangement.
 In scripture, the means by which sinners are reconciled 
and brought into a state of favor with God.

'God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself...'
     1Cor. 5:18
'For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, 
so that we might become the righteousness of God.'
     1Cor 5:21

"Jesus Christ reconciled the human race, putting it back
to where God designed it to be. And now anyone can
experience that reconciliation, being brought into oneness
with God, on the basis of what our Lord has done on the
cross.  (OC)

Reader, you are a mystery to me. I have no idea where
you are on this journey of reconciliation with God. I so
pray that you would consider what I have written, not
for the words but for the heart of God and how much He
loves you--even as you are now. Bow before Him and
let Him know your greatest need. He stands before you
to fill you with Himself.
