On the 3rd Sunday of Advent, we look at the Gift of Reconciliation. The gift that is Jesus is a gift of reconciliation. He was the offering, as a baby, that would become our Savior, knowing as he grew up that he would willingly be the sacrifice for our sins. We are asked to receive this gift of reconciliation from God, not because we have earned it or in any way deserve it, but simply because God loves us.
Based on 2 Corinthians 5:16-21.
