What is the scope of reconciliation?
I am a case study in what God can do. I had turned my back on Him. I had rebellious thoughts. I gave Him trouble at every turn, blaming Him for my problems. But, oh what a gift He made to me. It gave God great pleasure to let everything He had dwell in Jesus. It just filled Him up and it flowed out to all of us. Through Jesus’ great sacrifice I now have peace with my Father.
I can’t walk away from a gift like that!!! No way.
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:19
