- Reconciliation is to destroy the wall f hostility between parties.
- God does not love people who destroy relationships.
- Forgiveness is the price that one pays for reconciliation.
God is the author of Reconciliation. To reconcile is to destroy the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility between two parties. Anyone who works out reconciliation is a friend of God.
Anyone who destroys relationships is not a friend of God. Forgiveness is the price to pay for reconciliation to take place. The greatest work of reconciliation ever done was God reconciling man to Himself (John 3:16).
The work of reconciliation has now been given to man (2Cor.5: 18, 19). Reconciliation:
1.Is a Command
5.Is an Act of Worship
Reconciliation is a key pillar of covenant relationships.
Reconciliation draws nations to Christ (John 13:34, 35). Reconciliation invites God’s blessings (Psa. 133). Broken relationships are open doors for the devil, diseases, discouragement, wars, and confusion to take place. Unresolved grudges don’t just go away – they need resolution.
Unresolved grudges can affect the destinies of individuals, families, churches, organizations, careers, businesses, cities, Nations etc.
Jacob sought Esau his twin brother and their reconciliation was a blessing (Gen. 33). Reconciliation is possible today through the power of the Holy Spirit.
