In Christ we are free to love others with this newfound blessing of reconciliation. You can learn all about this gift of reconciliation in II Corinthians 5:18. Now that we have been reconciled to Christ, we have been given the ministry of reconciliation to share with others. Talk about a valuable gift: the gift to love others and show them the source of the true love. We are unable to genuinely love others without the love of God living within us. It is only by the power of the resurrection and the Holy Spirit that we have this gift of reconciliation. We need to spend time in prayer waiting before God, so He can transform us into His loving image. He will purge our attitudes, wrong motives and incorrect judgment of others freeing us to clear thinking with the mind of Christ. Remember that in our flesh with all its selfishness we are not able to love others, but when we die to our self, the we are free to love purely. When we see the wealth endowed upon us by Christ, then we will be generous with others. Not only with our earthly wealth, but most importantly with the gift of reconciliation. We have greater love because we have been forgiven greatly. Thankfully in times of prayer our heart and mind are changed through the resurrection power. As new creations in Christ Jesus we have a new spiritual perspective. With us nothing is possible that has eternal value, but with God our Father nothing is impossible for the sons of God. I pray that each one of us will be consumed by this new relationship with God, by spending time in His presence. And the wonderful part is that God makes all this change in our lives by pouring out His love on us. In Christ we can make choices today that will impact not only the rest of our lives, but for eternity.
