The Vertical: “Be Reconciled To God” A Sermon to the 222nd General Assembly  by Jerry Andrews [2 Corinthians 5:16-6:3]

Excerpt: I have argued that the Church has a Faith without which she cannot live faithfully. That Faith declares that a loving God sent a crucified and risen Savior, in whom God reconciled us to God and is now reconciling the world. That truth is announcement before it is agenda. The vertical orients the horizontal. This truth, I have attempted to persuade you, is the truth on which the reconciliation of, and within, the Church is founded. This is the Faith that we are invited to reaffirm: God reconciled us through Christ. In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself. Past tense, notably— the best tense for the announcement of the Gospel. God “has” provided for our salvation. See what God “has” done in Christ. And this is the faithfulness which it invites: Entreating each other to be reconciled to God. Urging each other to do so now. Fall 2016 Theology Matters p. 10
