2 Cor. 5:19 That God Was Reconciling The World To Himself In Christ, Not Counting Men's Sins Against Them. And He Has Committed To Us The Message Of Reconciliation.
Our pain makes us live apart from others and apart from Christ. Pain makes us like orphans without a parent or guardian to take care of us. In pain, we are looking for someone to help us. Our pain makes us say and do what we might know are wrong. Before God, we are apart from Him whether we are in pain or not. Christ came into the world to bring us to a place where we are no longer lost in our pain and no longer lost in our life. Christ came to bridge the divide between us and God…the great divide caused by our sin. When we were apart from God, Christ came to reconcile us with God. Christ came to cleanse our impurity of sin so we are clean and righteous. When we are together with Christ, even in our pain, we have Christ who is the great Comforter who brings us comfort and peace even in our pain.
