In this verse we as born again believers are all given the same ministry.
Now, we may all have different ministries in other areas but with regards to reconciliation we all have the same ministry.
And this ministry is to tell people they have already been reconciled through the finished work of Jesus (2 Corinthians 5 v 18).
How often do we hear people being shouted at in the street by an “evangelist”?
How often do we hear people being told to repent and turn from their wicked ways?
This should not be happening.
It is the goodness of God that leads men to repentance.
Men should be told the good news about the finished work of Jesus; the good news that they have already been reconciled and forgiven.
The good news is that only faith is required (and not works) to benefit from this reconciliation and forgiveness.
The good news is that reconciliation has already been delivered.
Reconciliation was a work of Jesus and is not a work required from man.
This came as a gift of grace from Jesus.
Jesus brought peace and goodwill from God and completed His work on the cross.
Our job (or our ministry) as believers is to tell people this good news!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that all men has been reconciled to you through the finished work of Jesus Christ”.
2 Corinthians 5 v 18…..And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation
