Week of February 11 - Day 4

Day 4 Read: 2 Corinthians 5:18

All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;

Reflect: For what purpose have you been made a new creation? What first had to occur?

Consider: We were his enemies (Rom. 5:10; 11:28), but, because he was still our Friend and Father, he brought us back to himself by Christ.[1]

Respond: In what way were you an enemy of God? What was the root cause? Consider Romans 5:8. Reflect on all God has done for you in spite of your sin.
