The Ministry of Reconciliation
2 CORINTHIANS 5;11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. 12 We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart. 13 If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. 16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Now is the time to come back and seek God as you once did before.  Feel no fear in doing so! God is calling you as He has called me.  He will embrace you, and show you once more what His love is all about.  No matter what you have done, past or present, it doesn’t matter to God. His mercy is new every morning!

I am so ever thankful for His love, His faithfulness.  Through tough times, He has been my rock to lean on, my comfort. and strength.  Now it’s my time to embrace what God wants to do in my life. We should want more than to come to Him only when we are in trouble or stressed, we should go to Him all the time!

It’s ok for us to want more, seek more, we shouldn’t be satisfy with what we have in life and be content.  Never be content.  Let’s earnestly seek and do God’s will, and through us, the world will know how God’s love has manifested through us!

Embrace what God has for you

time of refreshing

Now is the time to refresh our mind, our soul, our hearts to the things that God desires us to have. Let us water our souls and nourish with the Word. Let’s renew our minds and fix our eyes to Him. For He is good, and so wonderful. He created the oceans, the mountains, the seas, the prairies, the valleys and so much more for us to awe and enjoy Let’s not take for granted His wonderful works!

Give thanks! Let’s appreciate and give honor to Him by taking the time to seek Him.

Psalm 66:1 Shout with joy to God, all the earth! 2 Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious! 3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. 4 All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name.” “Selah” 5 Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man’s behalf ! 6 He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot– come, let us rejoice in him. 7 He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations– let not the rebellious rise up against him. “Selah” 8 Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; 9 he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. 10 For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.

Acts 3:19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord
