Re:Verse passage – Colossians 1:20-23 (day five) “For it was the Father’s good pleasure through Him to reconcile all things to Himself”. Last week’s Re:Verse text ended in mid sentence. Wanted to make sure we had the right motive for God’s work of reconciliation- God’s pleasure. The work of redemption is one-sided. God does all the work. He sacrifices. He makes the way. He invites. He calls. He takes the initiative. And in and through all His work and activity, He is “pleased”. Salvation is God’s JOYFUL work and activity. That’s a terrific invitation to a lost soul. The opportunity for salvation comes to us with joy and gladness. Remember, God has seen creation as it could and should be. All of it. And the work of reconciliation of all things brings Him great joy and pleasure because it also brings Him glory.
