SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK - 2 CORINTHIANS 5:18-19

This is one of the greatest passages in all Scripture. It's one we could meditate on night and day and not exhaust its meaning or power. It affirms that in Jesus we encounter God Himself. It affirms that God became Man not to judge and punish but to bring reconciliation and peace between humankind and our Creator.

In addition, it tells all of us who want to be Christian what we are to do with our lives. We have been given the ministry of reconciliation. We are to work for peace and harmony in the world. We are to reflect the love, the mercy, and the forgiveness of God. We are not sent to judge. We are not sent to punish. We are not sent to be divisive. We are not sent to isolate ourselves from the world.

May God give us the wisdom and the power to live as we are called to live.
