The word reconciliation means to make an exchange, to restore to favor with God. Jesus became our substitutionary sacrifice by being made sin so that we could be made righteous. What Jesus is we have become for He became what we were. Once born again we can stand in the presence of God without shame for we have become one with Christ. God was in Christ completing this work on the earth. In the eyes of God the sinner got saved at Calvary when Christ became sin, therefore God is not keeping a record of the sinners sin. This is what not imputing their sins means. What will send a sinner to hell and eternal damnation is not receiving Christ as their Savior. For all who are born again we now have a ministry of sharing this with sinners. It is not theirs sins that is keeping them separated from God but the sinful spirit within. Their sins are the result of that sinful nature. So when you witness to a sinner don’t focus on their sins, but the sinful nature within them for that is the root of the problem. If they will repent (turn to God) they will have that sinful nature removed and they can experience reconciliation; the great exchange, dying to the old man and receiving a new spirit within.
