Being Reconciled

Image result for Reconciled
We tend to forget that God's deepest desire is to reconcile us to himself. God doesn't delight in staying angry with us and nor does he withhold his mercy from any of us.

"Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
    but delight to show mercy." - Micah 7:18

Of course, there is also a part we need to play in responding to God's overtures of Grace. When we are reconciled to God, we should also seek to be reconciled to others. As John pointed out - we can't say we love God, whom we haven't seen, when we hate those who live among us (1 John 4).

What does reconciliation mean for you today?

Living in Grace
