Reconciliation continues to be possible for you as long as you remain under the covering and protection provided by Jesus. God cannot tolerate sin because of His nature. From His viewpoint you must be free of sin before He can accept you. Holiness is very similar to the glory of God. It is flowing out of His personality and Presence. Absence of sin is the result of holiness and is not holiness itself. Holiness is the character and nature of God, because God is holy. Jesus is the holiness of God extended to you, and He provides the way because He is the Way. You are accepted by God because Jesus was holy, and covered you with His righteousness, so God sees you exactly as He sees Jesus. God’s desire for you is that you see your fellow Christians as He sees them.
2 Corinthians 5:18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
