Received The Atonement
Romans 5:11 (KJB) And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
The preceding verses set us for us both the meaning and application of the atonement. The short and sweet biblical-based definition of this word is reconciliation to God. However, atonement cannot ever be considered lightly. Reconciliation is a big vital chunk in a right spiritual relation to God.
In essence, reconciliation means to agree with God about the nature of sin and death. It places every sincerely regenerated heart in eternal alignment with God. To receive atonement of God is to confess and forsake sin putting on the character of God, allowing God to remove the corrupt nature of this world.
Only through a personal spiritual relationship with God comes atonement. It is a work of God only possible through the finished work of His Only Son upon Calvary. Reconciliation to God means agreement with God about the nature of sin and death and perpetual alignment with His spiritual nature.
