1 John 4:10; Romans 3:25; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19; Colossians 1:20

10 In this is love, onot that we have loved God nbut that he loved us and sent his Son to be pthe propitiation for our sins.


25 whom God jput forward as ka propitiation lby his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in mhis divine forbearance he had passed over nformer sins.


18 All this is from God, lwho through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us mthe ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling1 the world to himself, nnot counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us mthe message of reconciliation.


20 and wthrough him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, xmaking peace yby the blood of his cross.
