The Message of Reconciliation—Sharing God’s Hope in San Juan

The Message of Reconciliation—Sharing God’s Hope in San Juan

The blood of Jesus makes us whole and alive—with all the joy that is set before him, He still chose to bear the cross in our place, so that we may have a restored relationship with a holy God.

This is the love that compels us to action.

Before 2023 ended, we spent Christmas within the walls of a juvenile detention center in San Juan City. Despite their past, we have the privilege to share the hope of salvation and reconciliation. Christ’s love and His church is not a place of condemnation but of restoration. 

We shared laughs, enjoyed meals, and ministered to their needs as a church community. 

This simple act of generosity also enabled us to extend our service to women in correctional facilities.

Let us always remember that God’s love is always looking after the least, lost, and the last. May we always find ourselves kneeling at the foot of the cross—the only place that qualifies us to be ministers of reconciliation to the world that seeks true and lasting hope.

All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 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. — 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 ESV
