Sharing God: Reflections on 2 Corinthians 5:11-21

Day 2 of 7 • This day’s reading

Devotional

DAILY SCRIPTURE 


All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:  that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:18-19 NIV)


YOU CARRY A MESSAGE 


Anyone who has received Jesus as their Lord knows the extraordinary lengths that God has gone to in order to bring us back into the relationship He desired to have with us all along. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection truly is the greatest love story of all time. This story is simply too beautiful, too powerful and too important to be kept to ourselves. 


God has a unique and wonderful plan for your life. He also has a unique and wonderful plan for every person that you meet, many of whom are yet to know their Saviour and discover their true identity, purpose and destiny. 


As a believer of Jesus, you carry a message - the very message that can connect each person with their heavenly Father - the message of reconciliation. 


As we constantly receive and explore God’s amazing love for ourselves as individuals, we must also give attention to the outworking of this in our lives, so that we can bless those around us and point them to Jesus as well. God has created you with a unique personality and skill set, which means you are uniquely positioned to bring His message of reconciliation in a way that no one else can. 


By prayerfully, humbly and passionately grabbing the opportunity with both hands, let’s be people who continue to share this great message!


THOUGHTS FOR PRAYER AND REFLECTION 



  • Ask God what He loves about the unique ways He has made you

  • How can you use these unique things about you to point people to Jesus?

  • What are some of the opportunities you have in your life to share the message of reconciliation?
