Be Reconciled

Be Reconciled

March 17, 2020

Have you ever been at odds with someone, relationally speaking? God can lead people to serve Him differently and in opposite directions for His purpose. However, relationally speaking this isn’t the case. Relationships might only be for a time and season, but they should move on under good terms, not at odds. If the relationship ended at odds, I would tend to say one of or both of the parties involved are acting outside the perfect will of God. God is not a God of division and confusion. He is a God of unity, reconciliation, grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love. The entire reason Jesus left His throne in heaven, was so that we could be reconciled to God and each other. If there is division between you and another person, it’s never too late to make it right. Actually according to God’s Word, the sooner the better. 🙏🏻✝️🙌🏻

““You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.” Matthew‬ ‭5:21-26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
