Reconciled in Christ

Each month, you find yourself with the daunting task of sitting down to balance out your bank account.  Most people find the objective of reconciliation to be one of their least favorite times of the month.  There are always a few people out there who enjoy this mathematical experience but they are few and far between.  Financial reconciliation is simply a challenge for most people.  However, even more daunting is the concept of spiritual reconciliation.  When we set our eyes on Christ as our perfect example, we will always fall short.  How can we possibly measure up and find balance with Christ’s perfection?  The answer is actually simple…God has already done the work of reconciliation.  We are made right with Jesus at the cross – as Paul shows up in Colossians 1:15-23.
