Curt Landry is often surprised when he hears of pastors and ministers who are hesitant to preach on the subject of reconciliation.
Landry, the founder of Curt Landry Ministries, says not only is it a privilege to do so, but that the church is actually called to this type of ministry because "we carry the blood of Jesus." For Landry, it's a no-brainer.
"We are Christ's ambassadors, and we are called to share the message of reconciliation with other in the community," Landry told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. "We carry the ministry of reconciliation, as it says in 2 Corinthians 5.
"The house of God is the house of reconciliation, and the power of reconciliation is the expungement of sin. The product that we carry is the blood of Jesus. That's why the enemy wants to make us nonessential. He wants to shut us down because it's the blood of Jesus. ...
"I want pastors and preachers and teachers to hear what Scripture says about that. Second Corinthians 5 talks about being reconciled to God: 'For the love of Christ compels us, because thus we judge, that if one died for all, then all have died.' A lot of people are afraid to share with people and tell people that you want to be saved, but people don't explain that they need to die to self. That's why you have to water baptize, to immerse them into death of self and resurrect them in the spirit."
