The Ministry of Reconciliation

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trepasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. – 2 Corinthians 5:17-19

Definition: the restoration of friendly relationships.

Christians are in the ministry of reconciliation–restoring people's relationships to God. Because of original sin, our relationship is severed from God. But God, not wanting us to perish, sent Christ to die for all and rise from the dead. Through Christ as a bridge, our relationship is restored to God.
