God’s Name: Sin Offering

What the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh.

Romans 8:3 NIV

Excerpted from 2031 Names of God: Transform Your Life as You Get to Know God in New Ways

Meditate on this name. Ask the Lord to reveal what He wants you to see from it today.

Sin Offering

Endorsement of God’s Design for Community and Reconcilable Differences    By Dr. Laura Mae Gardner, International Personnel Consultant and Trainer for Wycliffe and SIL International. Author of Healthy, Resilient, and Effective in Cross-Cultural Ministry:

These two books are an unusual duet, designed to be read together and in this sequence. Until we fully understand what it means to live in community and how to do that, we won’t grasp the desperate need to reconcile our differences and deal with our conflicts. This does not mean, of course, that we should move into a commune. It does mean we should have a menu of relationships in our lives, some for ministry, some for growth (mentors, models), some for stimulation, and some for fun. A few people should have the right to connect deeply with us, tell us hard truths about ourselves, and help us get our lives in order and on track. Some will be ‘back door people’, people we can rely on for anything at any time, those who we turn to for comfort, help, and guidance. Community tells us now to build deep and sound relationships and why. Gaylyn Williams has given us her usual skillful, Biblical, practical tools for living lives as God intended—in community.

But things will go off track for a variety of reasons and most of us will think it’s not worth the effort to try to restore the relationship. Worse yet, we don’t know how, even if we wanted to. Again, Gaylyn has written a guidebook, Reconcilable Differences, that takes us through this process from beginning of deterioration to restoration of relationship. We’d like to think it is ‘their fault’, whatever has divided us from friends and relatives. Maybe so, but the initiative for resolving the difference lies with us, and Gaylyn walks us through the process. We are without excuse. Dealing with broken relationships is possible, and the initiative is ours. And it can be done. Just read the book! Read them both. You’ll love them. I did.

Blessings on you as you get to know God,
