2017 Reconcile Attempt
Year: 2017

The icon used for this “Reconcile” area is from https://openclipart.org/detail/215902/70x7, and I thought it was great work, inventive, and clear. The note by the artist is:

“We must forgive 70x7 times. The Christian symbol for forgiveness is the chalice, so this drawing tries to represent the chalice made with inverted 7s.”

 

“diallassō” - Reconcile
Mat 5:24“leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”
“katallassō” - Mutually reconcile
Rom 5:10“For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life”
1Co 7:11“(but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife.”
2Co 5:18“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;”
2Co 5:19“that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation (katallagē)”
2Co 5:20“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
“apokatallassō” - Total reconcile
Eph 2:16“and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility”
Col 1:20“and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross”
Col 1:22“he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him,”
