Leviticus 8:15 And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.
Hebrews 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
We see what is written in the old and new testament dealing with reconciliation, but why do we really need it?
Reconciliation indicates that something which used to be together is no longer together. It has been separated and needs to be reunited.
Walk with me in your minds for a moment, let me place you behind a wooden door and shut that door with me on the other side. I ask how many fingers am I holding up? I place my hand upon the door and ask you,touch my hand? No matter how hard you try you cannot fulfill those request.
The only way to have fellowship, true fellowship and to know the Will of God is to be reconciled with God. Just as the person standing behind the door, the door must be removed so we can see each other and touch each other. In our spiritual lives sin is that door. For my next few articles I would like for us to look at reconciliation.
