Reconciliation requires forgiveness:

Jesus Christ  is ALL about reconciliation.  The "Law" dictionary has captured the principle-RECONCILIATION (Law:)  The renewal of amicable (friendly) relations between two persons [even nations!] who had been at enmity or variance; usually implying forgiveness of injuries on one or both sides. In law of domestic relations, a voluntary resumption of marital relations in the fullest sense. It means something more that resumption of cohabitation and observance of civility, and comprehends a fresh start and genuine effort by both the parties to avoid pitfalls (Sin) originally causing separation.

" Two other men , both criminals, were also led out with him [Jesus] to be executed. When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals -- one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said, "Father forgive them, for they do know not what they are doing."  Luke 23: 32-34.  Note to remember: Jesus had no Sin!

“For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.” -Psalm 86:5

Reconciled in Christ


For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.  -Colossians 1:19,20

The Cost of Un-forgiveness

 "But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." -Matthew 6:15

The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant Matthew 18:21-35

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the  throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

 "... as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us." -Psalm 103:12

 

If you truly desire forgiveness, all you have to do is ask!
