Years ago in a Western city, a husband and wife became estranged & finally separated. They left the city & resided in different parts of the country. The husband one day chanced to return to this city on a matter of business.

He went out to the cemetery to the grave of their only son. He was standing by the grave in fond reminiscence when he heard a step behind him. Turning, he saw his estranged wife.

The first inclination of both was to turn away. But they had a common, binding interest in that grave; and instead of turning away they clasped hands over that grave of their son & were reconciled one to another.

It took nothing less than death to reconcile them! It takes nothing less than death, the precious blood of Christ, to reconcile man to God.

“In Christ alone, and His payment of the penalty for our sins upon the Cross, we find reconciliation to God and ultimate meaning and purpose.” - Dave Hunt.

2 Cor 5:18 (ESV): “All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”
