This word always inspires me when I read it. This potion of scripture should not only be in your head but must rule your life. The Bible says God was in the world through Christ to reconcile us to himself.
II Corinthians 5:19 “that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation”.
This is powerful by itself. It goes further to say He was not imputing our trespasses to us. The love of God is so powerful that it can erase past experiences and position you on the right path in life.
The word inputting here is an accounting word; it means to account for or apply. It means while God was in the world; He saw all that we did but did not consider it to be our fault. When we were without God, He saw all that we did that was evil but did not input it on us. This is why we should not go out and accuse other people. God knew that demons are the problem and not people. The root cause of all problems is demons. People are just being used like puppets; Satan is the puppet master. This is why God did not put our trespasses on us. He knew that demons are primarily responsible for stealing, killing and destruction.
Father, I thank you for your grace upon my life. I am determined to preach the goodness of God. I am the light of the world and I take the gospel to the ends of my world. Take me higher in Jesus’ name; Amen.
