Now that we understand and have received the love God has for us and the result of that love, salvation, we have an assignment from God. Multitudes still have no concept of Who God is, that He loves them and that He sent His Son, Jesus, into this world. Jesus came, showing God’s love, and then dying on the cross, making the way for true salvation to happen. When He was raised from the dead He gave God’s children His authority and Spirit. Now we have the ministry of reconciliation with Jesus’ authority and power to carry on and further His work.
