Don’t just take our word for it . . . take His! We would encourage you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon: 2 Corinthians 5:16-6:2.
- It is important to regularly remind ourselves of the gospel
- Reconcile/reconciliation are important gospel words
- The Need for Reconciliation – a broken relationship between God and human beings
- relational barrier on human side is enmity/hatred towards God
- relational barrier on God’s side is wrath towards sin (His settled opposition against evil)
- The Work of Reconciliation – we are at fault but God took on the work of reconciliation
- v. 19 – He did not count our sins against us (mercy – not getting what we do deserve)
- V. 21 – He did count the righteousness of Christ to us (grace – getting what we don’t deserve)
- V. 21 – He did this by placing our sin on Jesus (he made him to be sin who knew no sin)
- What does it mean to “be reconciled to God” (v. 20)?
- What is the difference between trying and trusting in the work of reconciliation?
- What is an ambassador of reconciliation?
- How can Christians participate in the ministry of reconciliation? How does this affect us?
