Reflection for the Week

In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself. God has declared, through Christ and the arrival of the New Covenant, that he no longer counts sins against us. This act and message of reconciliation is handed over to God’s people, so that they might become ambassadors of Christ and the righteousness of God, announcing and living his settlement for all to hear and see. Stunning! A heavy responsibility, but as we work together with God, let’s do our utmost not to accept his grace in vain, nor in the mission of reconciliation to set obstacles in anyone’s way.
