When God raised Jesus we were completely released from the penalty of sin. Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26: To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: Romans 5:6-9 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7: For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9: Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

Ministry of Reconciliation - II Corinthians 5:17 & 18 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 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; Notice in verse 17 it says â€œbe in Christâ€ not â€œChrist in youâ€ as Colossians 1:27 states. â€œChrist in youâ€ is what God made unto you when you were born again; â€œyou in Christâ€ is what you do by renewing your mind. That is how all things become new, by changing your way of thinking according to the Word of God. Verse 18 says we have been given the ministry of reconciliation. In the Gospels Jesus Christ had the ministry of reconciling men back to God. In this age of Grace, the ministry of reconciling men back to God, has been committed to us. How do we do this? Verse 19 says God has committed the Word of reconciliation unto us v: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.
