The real outcome to atonement is reconciliation.


It is more than a restoration of a relationship.

It is the restoration of a divine relationship with the consequence of eternal life for one’s soul (Rom 5:10; 11:15).

And if there is a true and genuine reconciliation of one with God, true and genuine reconciliation between human beings can occur (Eph 2:16).

The atonement of Jesus Christ is so complete that Believers are absolutely reconciled with God, and He gives former offenders the privilege of representing Him (2 Cor 5:18-20).

For deeper study:

Does God reconcile Himself or is it man who is reconciled?
