God has committed unto you through His apostle the ministry of reconciliation! May the joy of being a new creation in Christ strengthen your heart today!
* Holy God, thank You for Your word, that it teaches us about You and Your salvation plan for us.
“Behold, now is the favourable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
Now is the favourable time! Now is the day of salvation!
Here is a cry from Paul for those reading his words – Come to Jesus!
He implores the reader, be reconciled to God!
Let this be our cry, as we speak to folk around us.
Let our lives be salt and light, imploring people to be reconciled to God in Jesus.
Let our prayer be for the day of salvation, the favourable time, to be now for those we know.
* Father God,
For our sake You made Jesus, who knew no sin, to be sin – so that in Him we might become righteousness, Your righteousness.
Please save those around us and onwards outwards Lord God.
Please call them with irresistible grace and may they answer.
May they be reconciled to You.
Please Lord God, this we pray.
