Reconciliation: Word Ambassadors: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:17-19

“So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; …. and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.”

One of the joys of being around babies is to watch their curiosity as they inhale new experiences every day. Their surprise and joy, and sometimes startled fear, helps us to see and hear from a different perspective too.

What new perception would impact us every day if we recognized and accepted reconciliation as a reality? If we are willing to understand each other and mend broken communication? If we based all our reconciliation on God’s truth and not our own versions?

Like any ministry, reconciliation is not an easy choice and may have many difficult roads to navigate to get beyond past hurts, misunderstandings, and the uncertainty of what comes next.

Yet, when grounded in mutual commitment, each day is a fresh beginning grounded in love and grace and mercy. Like a sunrise it breathes beauty.

Lord, please help us to let go the pain of the past and the worry of the future and instead live each day as a new beginning. Give us Your strength to choose reconciliation to you and to others.

Psalm of Worship: 1 John 1:8

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”
