Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Are you in a strained relationship: is your husband distant, or are you and your sister not speaking? Or maybe you had a dispute with a neighbor over parking on the street? Is there division? If so, be reconciled. Actually, it starts with Christ’s ministry of reconciliation on the cross. Martin Luther once said, “Christ took our sins and the sins of the whole world as well as the Father’s wrath on his shoulders, and He has drowned them both in Himself so that we are thereby reconciled to God.” Oh, friend, if Jesus has done all that for us, then cannot we extend that same mercy to those who have offended us? The cross is the ultimate evidence that there is no length the love of God will refuse to go in order to bring about reconciliation. So, if there’s division in your life, follow His example. Extend his mercy to others and have a ministry of reconciliation.
