For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. – 2 Cor 5:19 (NIV)
A lot of the time, we often view people who are not Christians as outsiders. We think that we are forgiven and they are not.
However, according to this verse, we are very much the same. God is not counting our sins against us or them. The difference is that we know it already and have chosen to receive it. God has given us the wonderful privilege of explaining this great news to others. That’s why it’s called the good news.
Today, thank God for reconciling you through Jesus and forgiving you of all your sins. Look for opportunities today to share this good news with someone that doesn’t know it.
