Restore Friendly Relations
The word reconciliation means “restore friendly relations”. What a great opportunity to be a reconciler during this Christmas season. This is exactly what our Heavenly Father has called you and I to be, His ambassadors, bringing reconciliation between God and man!
What an opportunity to exercise this commission from God, to bring men and women to God through our love and care for them, yes ,Christ working through us.
At Christmas time we shall meet loved ones we do not often see during the year, some reunions will be sheer bliss and others maybe not quite so! However this is our God given opportunity to build bridges, love unconditionally, let bygones be bygones and be the reconcilers Jesus has called us to be.
