Reconciled to God and Men

It is wonderful for us to participate in the movement of our worship service from beginning with confessing sins to now sitting down with Jesus. The ministry of God in Christ is certainly a ministry of reconciliation. We have been brought near, in peace, with God and with each other.

       This peace only happens when we humble ourselves in Jesus. If we make ourselves small, then we do not have any reason to be at odds with God or men. That is why we confess ongoing sins. But God does not leave us small. He raises us up and seats us with His Son in glory at the honored place at the Table. We do not swell up with pride at this. It is God’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes. We simply give thanks.
