(from Rev E. Foggitt)
2 Corinthians 5:20b
“We implore you on Christ’s behalf: be reconciled to God.”
The Greek word for “be reconciled” - katallagete - is sometimes wrongly translated as “reconcile yourselves”. It’s a crucial point: we don’t do the reconciling; Jesus does it. And then we are called - as was Paul - to take part in God’s reconciling activity to win back the world.
Reflection: It is possible to be a believer without being fully “reconciled to God.”
