Day 250 of 365 - God made peace by using Christ's blood on the cross.

Posted by eThought .com on

Jesus paid the price for all the bad things that people do.19God was pleased for all of himself to live in Christ. 20And through Christ, God was happy to bring all things back to himself again--things on earth and things in heaven. God made peace by using Christ's blood (death) on the cross. 21At one time you were separated from God. You were God's enemies in your minds, because the evil things you did were against God. 22But now Christ has made you God's friends again. Christ did this by his death while he was in his body. Christ did this so that he could bring you before God. He brings you before God as people who are holy, with no wrong in you, and with nothing that God can judge you guilty of. 23Christ will do this if you continue to believe in the Good News you heard. You must continue strong and sure in your faith. You must not be moved away from the hope that Good News gave you. That same Good News has been told to all people in the world. I, Paul, help in telling that Good News. (Easy-to-Read Version: Colossians 1:19-23)                          
19For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: 23If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister. (King James Version: Colossians 1:19-23)
