HeartWorship: Reconciliation

Why is it so difficult to reconcile?

Broken promises, people, homes, nations. We’ve broken faith.

We can’t un-do the damage done. We grasp our grudges. We harbor hate. We can’t forget, even when we can forgive.

God can. He, too, has offered His trust … and been betrayed. Still He yearns for reconciliation.

Like a Father to a prodigal child. Like a hen to her baby chicks. Like a Man on a cross to the ones who put Him there.

It should bring us to our knees in prayer and praise. But …

Do we dare say our thanks and sing our worship to Him while still at odds with others His Son died for?

“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.” – Matthew 5:23-24
