2 Corinthians 5:18-21 give us this same proclamation of good news! It says, Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 19that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 20Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” The good news is God has dealt with the sin issue in Christ Jesus! The judgment for our sin was placed on Jesus and in Christ we have right standing with God! God is not angry with mankind – His thoughts are not of evil or of judgment, but of love and reconciliation! God has come to earth because of His great love and compassion for us!
What a great gift! God has given us a gift – all we have to do is receive it, open it, and it is ours. With the Angels of heaven, we sing the same tune – “Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” We are praying that you will experience this gift of His eternal presence in your lives this Christmas season – and all the year!
