Allow this word from God to sink deeply into your soul today. Breathe it in. Let it bring life!
God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins. God has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. We’re speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you.
How? you ask. In Christ. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.
Companions as we are in this work with you, we beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given us. .
–2 Corinthians 5:20-6:2
