For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
We were people in sin. Yet, God, the Injured Party, made peace with us through the sacrifice of His Son. Don’t miss this: HE CHOSE TO MAKE PEACE! The Holy God of the universe chose to make peace with sinful man. He is our example, and He has commanded us to do the same. “If possible, as much as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Romans 12:18
