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 Corinthians 5:19 NLT)
Last night at church we showed the film Father of Lights. I was speechless as I watched this man travel the world to share the gospel with those whom others might consider “hard hearted”. He was bold, fearless and full of faith because He trusted his heavenly father to direct his every step and to protect him. Guru’s, gang members and muslims all gave their hearts to Jesus because of a man who chose to love them to Christ, instead of calling out their sin.
God has reconciled us, or reunited us, in relationship with Himself through His Son, Jesus. He does not ask us to clean ourselves up before we enter relationship with Him. We can come as we are. Sometimes I think I look at others with judgment, thinking their hearts are hard or not yet ready to receive the Lord. Who am I to ever judge the heart of a man? Oh Father, forgive me! God has given us the message of reconciliation, so that we would tell others about Him, and the free gift of salvation.
Are you reconciling others to God? If you haven’t had a chance to see Father of Lights, I would highly recommend it. You can’t help but be changed after watching it.
I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays. This is where we share a scripture with just simple insight. No heavy words necessary. Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!
