πŸ‘‘ Enemies Reconciled To God

β€œWhen we were enemies” (Rom.5:10).

Think of it! God has good news for us even in our willfulness, our enmity against Him! β€œWhen we were enemies”, says Paul, β€œWe were reconciled to God by the death of His Son”.

God still sends His ambassadors out to offer reconciliation to all His enemies everywhere β€” β€œby the death of His Son”. Think of it! We who believe are reconciled to God, not by some effort or payment offered by us to placate God, but β€œby the death of HIS Son”. He bore the enmity as His own creatures mocked Him, spat in His face and nailed Him to a tree. This is grace indeed! And this is not all, for the whole passage reads:

β€œFor if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

β€œAnd not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement [Lit., reconciliation]” (Rom.5: 10,11).

The argument of this passage is that if, as His enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more β€œbeing reconciled”, we may be assured that our living Savior will keep us safe. And not only are believers safe in Christ, but all the while we β€œjoy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received”, not only help in our helplessness, or the forgiveness of our sins, but β€œthe reconciliation”, by which we are brought nigh to God and experience His love toward us. source
