1 Corinthians 5: 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; The phrase "all things are of God" may be referring back to the "all things made new" in those who are in Christ Jesus in the preceding verse. Every spiritual blessing in Christ comes down to us from the Father through the Mediation of God the Son. Though Christ, we have been reconciled to God. The wall that seperated us from the presence of God has been broken down, the veil has been torn, and we have been brought into perfect acess and felllowship with God This wonderful access is purchased by AND maintained by the blood of Christ (see First John 1:7) He has also given us the ministry of reconciliation by which we bring Christ to others, invite them to receive Christ, and Christ bringing them into the presence and blessing of the Father. 1 Corinthians 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Christ was the fulness of the Godhead bodily and the Perfection of Holiness. He was in the Father and the Father in Him, and in Christ, God was reconciling the world unto Himself. Jesus died for all men. ALL THE KOSMOS/WORLD. 1 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. Now that Christ has put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself, He has opened a door for men to come and be reconciled to God. We who have been reconciled are commissioined to bring the Word of reconciliation to the lost, we are the vessels that God uses to bring Christ to the world and bring hearts into contact with Christ. The SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE SAY COME! 1 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Jesus became a sin offering for us. All of our sins were laid upon Him so that in believing we may be blameless before God. Even though we have sinned again and again, God sees no iniquity in us. We have been made righteous in Christ. He sees no iniquity in us, nor does He see frowardness in His beloved people. He sees the righteousness of Christ. Don't keep this blessing to yourself. Share it with everyone you meet!
