On the Ministry of the Keys and Confession: “Be Reconciled!” (2 Corinthians 5:17-21)

Pastor Dale Jaech, December 2, 2018
Part of the 2018 Catechism Series series, preached at a Sunday Divine service

Heavenly Father, although we cannot reconcile with You, our Almighty Creator, for our sins against You of thought, word, and deed, You have sought and accomplished reconciliation through the innocent life and the bitter sufferings and death of Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Grant to us the encouragement of Your Holy Spirit, that we may receive with joyful and contrite hearts the absolution of our sins and the assurance of our entrance into Your eternal kingdom and proclaim this same good news to others as Christ’s ambassadors. Amen.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (KJV)
