Today’s Truth: He Brought Us Back to Him

Salvation is a gift from God for the purpose of bringing us back to himself through Christ (“And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him” 2 Corinthians 5:18). God’s first act of reconciliation was through Jesus Christ. He brought His Son into the world to save the souls of man and reconcile man to God.

The second act of reconciliation is through God’s people: believers. He wants us to reconcile others to Him. Our job is to share the hope of His salvation with the people around us, our community, our nation, and to the ends of the earth. We can do this locally by sharing about what He has done in our lives with the people around us. We can get involved in mission trips both within our nation and globally. If that is not something you can do, then you can participate by giving and praying for those on mission.

Work to reconcile others to Him out of the love you have for God. He has reconciled you so that you may spread His great love to others.
