Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. (2 Cor 5:18-19)
This passage of the Bible informs us that God has given to us the ministry of reconciliation, which is a continuation of the ministry of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The ministry of reconciliation is the message of the Gospel.
. . . and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. 21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister. (Col 1:20-23)
Jesus told us in John 14:6 that no one can be reconciled to God without Him. Salvation is through Jesus Christ.
Once we accepted Jesus as our Savior, we were then drafted into service to the Kingdom of God; and we became servants of Christ. (1 Cor 4:1; Col 1:7) As Christ’s servants, our charge is to share this good news with everyone whom we meet!
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (Mat 28:18-20)
Considering all that Jesus has done and continues to do for each one of us, we are honored to willingly give Him our lives in order to serve Him. When we share His Good News, we’re ministering reconciliation!
