The Cross Reconciled Us to God

“For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.”

Romans 5:10


Ponder This

Christ has suffered for sin, the just for the unjust. Why? That He might bring us to God! What does sin do? Sin separates us from a holy God. What does the cross do? On that cross, Jesus reconciled God and Man. He’s made peace by the blood of His cross that He might bring us to God. The word reconciled in Greek is prosago. It means to take an individual and present him to a king or a dignitary.

That’s what Jesus has done. He has taken us by the hand and has presented us to God the Father. He’s saying, “Father, these are mine. I purchased them with my blood on that cross.” Does that excite you? That is a life-changing message! You and I were separated and far from God but now we get to be in His presence and live for and with Him forevermore!

  • How does it affect you to remember you have been reconciled to God? How has your life changed as a result?
  • How easy or difficult is it for you to remember the weight of your separation from God?

Practice This

Praise and thank God for reconciliation with Him. Pray for someone you know who still needs that hope.
