The main mission for Jesus was to bring about the reconciliation of man and God.
There had been a barrier of sin between the two parties and this barrier had to be removed.
Jesus removed that barrier by becoming the propitiation (or payment) for all sin through shedding His blood on the cross (1 John 2 v 2).
As His blood flowed man was reconciled to God and at the same time also forgiven (Colossians 1 v 14 and Ephesians 1 v 7).
Now, not every man is saved, as salvation comes as a gift of grace through faith in this finished work of Jesus.
However everyone has been forgiven and everyone (and everything) has been reconciled.
Scripture is very clear on this.
Jesus came to bring about peace (and therefore reconciliation) between man and God (Luke 2 v 14).
Jesus was successful in His mission, shedding His blood willingly on the cross.
There is now no barrier of sin between man and God, the only barriers left are the barriers that we put up ourselves.
All men have been reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5 v 18) and this is what permits us to move into salvation if we so choose.
Because we have been reconciled and forgiven we can be saved and made righteous, only available because of the shed blood of Jesus.
Speak this out today….”Thank you Lord for me reconciliation and forgiveness and thank you that because of that I could be saved”.
Colossians 1 v 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
