Let's Make Up


We must not only be saved, but reconciled to Christ. Our relationship doesn't just include being saved from hell, but a restored relationship with God. Take time today to study these scriptures that will help to facilitate a healthy viable reconciliation between you and the Lord. Christ is so very interested to ridding us of the slander of the evil one, and becoming one with us without interference or interruption.
