  Study Tools

Intro: We hear a lot about the need for reconciliation.

Believers should re-visit this matter, and being

believers, we should practice this at home, at the

workplace, in our neighborhoods, in our churches

and anywhere we are placed in this world. God began

the matter of reconciliation.

Let us examine:

I. The MEANING OF RECONCILIATION

"To destroy emnity, to make friendly again"

"To bring together"

*Our sin caused us to be at emnity with God

and with each other. We have a need to

be reconciled to God and to one another.

II.The MOTIVE FOR RECONCILIATION

A. Man’s need for God

B. God’s love for Man

*Romans 5:8

*John 3:16

III.The METHOD OF RECONCILIATION

*GOD was IN CHRIST...RECONCILING THE WORLD

UNTO HIMSELF.

*HE IS THE "just" and the "justifier"

*HE SATISFIED JUSTICE AND MERCY BY TAKING

THE PUNISHMENT AND PAYING THE PRICE IN ONE

MIGHTY ACT ON THE CROSS.

*CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS, WAS BURIED, AND ROSE

AGAIN ON THE THIRD DAY, ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES

IV. The MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION

*Since God has taken such drastic steps

to reconcile us to himself, he has given to

all who receive Him the task of being

reconcilers.

*Thus, there should be no infighting within

believer fellowships, between denominations,

etc. We should make every attempt to be

reconcilers instead of building barriers.

Conclusion:

God began the work of reconciliation because

of His great Love for us...and of our great

need for Him. The method was costly...but the

price has been paid. Will you be reconciled to Him

and commit yourself to a Ministry of reconciliation?

The world certainly needs it!!!
