In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s trespasses against them. — 2 Cor 5:19 NET
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in the Son and through him to reconcile all things to himself by making peace through the blood of his cross – through him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.—Loyal love and faithfulness meet; deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss.
“’I know what I have planned for you,’ says the Lord. ’I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you.’”—“Come, let’s consider your options,” says the Lord. “Though your sins have stained you like the color red, you can become white like snow; though they are as easy to see as the color scarlet, you can become white like wool.”
There is no other God like you! You forgive sin.—“Reconcile yourself with God, and be at peace with him.”—Continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, for the one bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort – for the sake of his good pleasure – is God.—O Lord, you make us secure, for even all we have accomplished, you have done for us.

“May your kingdom come.” — Matt 6:10 NET
“In the days of those kings the God of heaven will raise up an everlasting kingdom that will not be destroyed and a kingdom that will not be left to another people. It will break in pieces and bring about the demise of all these kingdoms. But it will stand forever.”—“A stone was cut out, but not by human hands.”—“’Not by strength and not by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord who rules over all.”—“The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed, nor will they say, ’Look, here it is!’ or ’There!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
“The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you…. The kingdom of God is like someone who spreads seed on the ground. He goes to sleep and gets up, night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. And when the grain is ripe, he sends in the sickle because the harvest has come.”—“Therefore you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”—The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say: “Come!”
