Our Reconciled Relationship With God
In light of the majesty of who Christ is and all He’s done, Paul explained our condition before we received Christ. Because we actively waged war with God in our minds and willingly disobeyed Him in our actions, our relationship with God was broken. But the good news of the gospel is that God restored and reconciled the relationship through Jesus’ death in our place. God declared believers right before Him so that one day we would be presented holy and blameless for all eternity. The power of the Holy Spirit in us enables us to put the flesh to death and seek Christ daily, so we can continue in the faith. This is miracle of our reconciled relationship with God.
Scripture: Colossians 1:21-23
