Be Thankful For One Another

For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.  – Romans 5: 10

Most people have at least one person whom they can call a close friend, or a best friend. Mostly, that close friend will one day be your maid of honor, best man, or maybe, your spouse.  Most friendships, especially the healthy ones, evolves from the commonalities and strengthens from the similitudes in different aspects of their lives.  Most friction from friends are due to the areas in their lives where dissimilitude rears individuality in mutual relationships.  In many aspects, conflict causes friends to disconnect physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Unfortunately, it is possible for people who were once inseparable to manifest behaviors similar to those of an enemy.

Jesus Christ created humanity, in order that He and humanity could co-exist eternally without a physical, mental, or emotional divide.  But, through the guise of the enemy, humanity became holistically an enemy of God.  Unlike when people become enemies with other people, God did an act of love that most close friends are not willing to do for each other, and that is to give up His life for those who choose to be His enemy.  Jesus Christ’s ultimate mission was to reconcile once enemies back to an eternal relationship with Himself.  Jesus Christ sets the example that people were not created to have enemies with God or with one another, but have an everlasting connection through His life. Ask God to reconcile His relationship with you, and your relationship with others.
