REMIND OURSELVES CONSTANTLY:
WE ARE TO SEEK RECONCILIATION & FORGIVENESS BECAUSE WE’VE RECEIVED RECONCILIATION AND FORGIVENESS…
We’re recipients, so we’re called to be participants.
2 Corinthians 5:17-18.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
The apostle John asks us in Scripture,
"Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen" (1 John 4:20).
