In the conversation for Sunday, November 4, 2018, Pastor Stuart Nice reminds us that we are reconciled to God through Christ becoming sin for us and thus taking away our sin. Christ inoculates us so that we can share the immunity with others, enabling them to be reconciled to God as well.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf: “Be reconciled to God.” He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Working together with him, we also appeal to you, “Don’t receive the grace of God in vain.” For he says: At an acceptable time I listened to you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. See, now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation!
