Colossians 1 vs
20》》” And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.”~》KJV》_
Peaceful greetings to you, Cherished one. The fall of mankind through the first Adam caused the relationship between God and mankind to be sour. And as sin increased, God was grieved that He created mankind (Gen 6:6). God became angry with the sin of Adam and Eve to the extent that He cursed the ground (Gen 3:17). Therefore our opening scripture speaks of reconciliation of all things to God. *The presence of sin caused mankind to be hiding and running away from God (Gen 3:8).*
However, everything changed from worse to best because, in the _”fulness of time, God sent forth His son Jesus…”(Galatians 4:4)._ Jesus has been approved and sealed that all men through Him should receive salvation (Acts 4:12). Man in his own strength couldn’t do anything to earn God’s favour and righteousness but thanks be to God who sent Jesus to shed His precious blood on the cross for all. Our focal text unveils that the blood of Jesus established peace. This type of peace as used in the Greek is a loving peace which harmonises and takes away all forms of separation with God.
That’s why Christ is called the PRINCE OF PEACE (Isaiah 9:6). Through Him, we have peace with God (Rom 5:1). The wrath of God is revealed against all unrighteousness, but He is waiting and willing that all should come to repentance (Titus 2:11; 2 Pet 3:9). Cherished one, all things (whether on earth or heaven) have been reconciled to God in peace by the means of the blood shed on the cross. Rejoice and enjoy this peace in Christ. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Dear Lovely Father, I thank You for reconciling me to Yourself by reason of the blood. It is soothing to know that You are not angry at me again. Thank You for giving me access to enter into the throne of grace. I praise You for the blood of Jesus that has established a peace that surpasses human understanding in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen !
*◇ Enjoy A Blessed Tuesday◇*
_Pray that God’s Spirit would cause you to enjoy the peace of God in all your ways._
