In Scripture, is the restoration of harmony between two persons at variance, by the removal of existing obstacles, 1 Samuel 29:4 . Christ bids the man who has wronged his brother, to make peace with him, and secure his favor by confession and reparation, before presenting his gift at God's altar, Matthew 5:23,24 . In the far more important matter of peace with God, to make human salvation possible, a just God must be reconciled to the sinner, and the rebellious sinner be reconciled to God. This reconciliation is effected by the blood of the Spirit, Romans 5:10 2 Corinthians 5:19 Ephesians 2:16 .
