Why be reconciled to God?

Why be reconciled to God?

2 Corinthians 5
20 Therefore, we are the Messiah’s representatives, as though God were pleading through us. We plead on the Messiah’s behalf: “Be reconciled to God!” 21 God made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that God’s righteousness would be produced in us.

Killing the Author of Life

I was reading in the Book of Acts last night where Peter tells the other Jews that they killed the author of life. I just started weeping. God came down among us to save us and so we killed him. When he returns, the whole world's going to gather together to try and kill him again. What kind of monsters are we?

God's Perfect Righteousness

Who is God

Jeremiah 9:24
but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things," declares the LORD.

One way to describe God is to discuss his attributes. He is perfect in his wisdom, perfect in his lovingkindness, perfect in holiness and righteousness, perfect in justice, perfect in wrath, perfectly faithful, perfect goodness. Those are a few of the ways that God is described in the Bible.
