I'll Reconcile IF...

An attitude that is often heard: "'I'll reconcile IF ... "

Where would we be now if God had held us to his own standard of holiness before entering into relationship with us? Where would Abraham be, or Peter? What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? We are not only positive toward reconciliation; we have to pursue reconciliation. To make the first move, as God did and still does. Love is not about principles, love is in our hearts and minds, and shows in the way we act.
