The Ministry of Reconciliation
2 Corinthians 5:21, Colossians 1:21-22

Pastor Justin Ratcliffe, 1 April 2012

How could a loving God voluntarily send his son to die?

2 Corinthians 5:21

21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (ESV)

Colossians 1:21-22

21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, (ESV)
