Reconciliation. Reconciliation means that there used to be a problem. Reconciliation means that there was a ruptured relationship. There was alienation and separation. Reconciliation is the establishment of harmony and peace between enemies. Reconciliation bridges the chasm that existed between two people. Reconciliation means that the hostility has ended and the two are no longer enemies. Listen to these three verses in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 and how frequently Paul says something about reconciliation.
All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5:18–20 ESV)
