uncontrollable shaking fears that it was a Sunday morning about seven thirty how is headed to work about seven thirty seven novices in Wichita Kansas and is now live traffic out there Sunday morning fact agency aren't any cars and on but I think you will always thinking as I often do when I drive and as I looked off to the right at the on-ramp I noticed a a big tractor-trailer things in life on a John deer tractor coming up on it on to the interesting so I signaled to get over the left lane so he could so we can get on and then I noticed that a Navy blue Chevy pickup truck right now the county government wanted around this strong and I'm sure that many of you have experienced this kind of situation is better than here in Southern California and so on watching him ensure not this guy decides to jump all the way with the vastly cellular it's that struck the problem was that he in the truck were going about twenty five miles an hour compared to my five eighty nine it was close enough in severe enough that I had to ought to slam on my brakes and I still ahead which led Atreides swerve around him and somehow maneuver between for the line tractor-trailer I saw the latter often and from that moment on the stories my blurry I swear nowhere and because of the speed I was going to this County and somehow I made him between the truck and engine and the saline after about three quarters of a mile when certain into the media on backwards forwards sideways I remember one time looking at my side when with an interstate and this allows that I thought you about your limited way I think I is situationally no time to stop and think no time to sometimes spend time with God haven't done so already a morning sometime Mumbai the grace of God I am a flight off interstate backwards and only is Apple going to mile marker and have a little skilled in all of my bumper to bumper my car and all nursing graphs inside between the wheel and tires on at one point are going to want to share attend a stop and looked over to my left my card installed and I see this drug plan and try to gather myself and Emma Goldman received this in my pool and I'll never forget the look on helplessly as without it and all is God 's mouth was open while I was really possible I see it must be seen by the show one advantage to will will will him I know there is one there is I try to start my car is flooded sorry right away when I can I realize it was quietly always I was shaking I lifted my foot drivers the question remains just shaking I can control it my rock 'n roll musician and black background presented in the shutdown is no one listening music system the second sled I started my car and started and drove off I decided to take the bathrooms finish the work and I can tell you that was probably the most solemn pride that I ever as I was thinking about all of this thinking about conditions in contemplation of my heart previously the words came to my mind almost on a gun pressed upon my heart because of their agreement violates the gun pressed upon my heart shall now is the time we reconcile things I can say that that morning on my way to work seventeen years old I made myself I gave my heart and I made a decision to follow and will him this morning announced this to me second Corinthians chapter five verse twenty second Corinthians chapter five verse twenty six five twenty headsets that is what O'Reilly chapter six will explain a little bit when here we go now then we are ambassadors for Christ as though God were pleading through us we implore you on Christ's who reconciled to God for he made him who knew no sin to be sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in him we met him that's a huge lead as workers together with him also please would you not to receive the grace of God in vain for he sat in an acceptable time I heard the and in the day of salvation I helped behold now is the accepted time behold now is the day salvage I will break this down to three points in the first one that we find here is that God is saying always say on Christ's behalf now is the time to be reconciled with LSI very first one that now that we are ambassadors for Christ as of the completing the levels we implore you on Christ's behalf erectile images videos of you have not been addressed it is forgot and he shall be reconciled to God that is the next be reconciled to God not the concepts of these verses here if you were to read the voice of the well-known person on if anyone in private integration Ryan never Vespers seventeen therefore if anyone is in Christ is a new creation on things that would know all verse nineteen says that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself through Jesus and Paul turns verse twenty is in speaking of the reconciliation did not already provided across and mercifully he turns to the church and he says to your patients reconcile yourself reconcile the reference to another said the chapter Greg really should've been a consumer is earlier probably should've been two verses later because the next two verses really does follow the thought of what was being said there but it doesn't have the numbers is there is concern itself with this command originating with pride I mentioned briefly the person he times this is this just simply coming from an alcohol coming from Jesus Christ God suggested fairly as we read these words this morning Jesus himself is saying to you reconcile yourself straight from God straight from God he says it specifically urges restraint was from you created now as I pointed out explain the context of this passage is indicating that we play a part in this process right if the command is make well that assumes that the fact that we have to do snake somehow responsible that it is that logical is okay we would therefore reconcile is not colossal and it interesting that the definition actually needs to change mutually to change mutually in order for reconciliation to take place interested parties nationally advantage that will event on October twentieth you were to read up until summer twenty is always talking about how John reconciled the world to himself through Jesus Christ 's sacrifice of his son and friend I wanted to work for the Creator of the heavens in the art to come down a human question he and his interviewing is this positive individual reconciliation print is find the answer that the party has authority not his part is not oriented ball is in your juices here we find an opening prayer is your time reconciling your heart and I don't know in your face praise the Lord that all these people were able to go to UIC I wish I could of been there but I was happy here I can't seem to have completely to Christ the reconciling something last time you want to the second we got our passage will will will the second plea is now is the time to start receiving the grace of God first of all now is the time to be reconciled to God know that yesterday except Christ into your heart sincerely honestly going to put across but across the state Jesus I want your your sacrifice a lot of money records videos and business x-rays on those on the same angle as right as these words to the Caribbean 's right to the church if they were in the church are to baptize them they were already reconciled it was claimed to be reconciled to God by now my business name and not receive the grace of God they think that means but is all kinds of things that can be looked after in the history of the church at Corinth they had fallen into polygon a land-based phone into horrible disgusting sense back into the pagan worship and immorality all kinds of things and policy address and had has been addressed in a single one is saying is start doing stuff like English and active start at friends University Christ in your heart your question stopped receiving his dreams and passwords it will purposely and intentionally if we purposely a potentially instantly but a course of sin again and again we are receiving the grace of God reservoir are becoming more like world 's greatest if we're continuing in the same onset the same thing in common and seventy three and we intentionally plan questions and you and I are receiving hundreds not my words Christ stopped receiving grace is the second point because the historic beginning shortly if if I had after having not having saved my life that I recognize got been convicted he put for example to not listen to this music NFL thank you for saving my life my sense I'm not to listen to it anymore and after work that they are not only Cartwright on my stereo in your home rocket within receiving the grace of God this is one it would and I'm not crazy about music is going to separates you from God anything that the Holy Spirit convicting your harmony and changing your life my high-strength nylon of course is that anything that's in your life incentives and airline inherently constitute receipt 's greatest people on screws who is no perfect we can't work talking about President Bush John specifically speaking of crisis come into your life except that it and he has been harnessing praise the Lord he reigns victorious today and he has the power to come into your heart if you would not ever ask you something you would I said all received my resume your password when you have

and I can tell your friends that you have a picture now is the time to start receiving the grace of God in vain now the third and last point that automates this passage one hundred and God is simply say this is that we must read with me verse verses one to second grade teacher six within his workers together with him possibly would not receive the grace of urgency for his set an acceptable time I heard you and in advance salvation I helped the whole is the second time you know now is there something is not clear God hears and helped this is one of my favorite verses in the Bible you know are
