The Lenten Journey 2015 – A Time to Reconcile to God

get-attachment-26.aspx_-160x2003” Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

2Corinthians 5: 20-121 (NKJV)

Lenten season is a time to reconcile to God.
As we have chosen to live our lives as Christians sometimes we, unintentionally, can get to busy, go astray from or become distant to our relationship with God. But, the Lenten season gives us an opportunity to make our relationship righteous to God.

During this Lenten season, let’s obtain a greater understanding of our relationship to God. Because of our faith in Jesus Christ, God has made us ambassadors for Christ. We are representatives of the Kingdom in the kingdoms of the world  By doing this, God wants us to help others to know the importance of the sacrifice that Christ made for us. Our text states, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”(2 Corinthians 5:21) God gave us Christ, so that we can decidedly not live in sin but to live in the righteousness of the one who has given Christ to us. God wants us to be with Him!

God, also wants, us to make the time to have a relationship with Him that is so binding that one can’t be too busy for, go astray from or become distant to Him. Instead, God wants us to have a relationship with him that is so substantial that our souls will be strengthen by it, and that we know in our hearts that we are standing as Christians on the behalf of Christ. The text also states, “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:20) God wants to know you!

Let’s bind our one-on-one relationship with God in this Lenten season. It is a time to reconcile to God.
Amen!
