I understand the word “reconciled”. I’ve had relationships that have been reconciled and a few that were never reconciled.
The simple meaning of this word is – joined – resolved – squared.
I’ve dabbled in some simple carpentry projects. I still have a bookcase I made in shop class in the ninth grade. It still stands. The joints are still joined – they are reconciled.
A Christmas phrase jumped on me this morning in my writing time.
God and sinner reconciled
I suppose the short meaning of this is for our need to be squared with God. To be joined and have our connection resolved.
That is how I want to live. I want to be reconciled with God.
