Reconciliation. The Greek word signifies "to change thoroughly from," and occurs in (Rom 5:10); (Rom 11:15); (Co1 7:11); (Co2 5:18); (Co2 5:19); (Co2 5:20). Reconciliation looks toward the effect of the death of christ upon man, as propitiation,

(See Scofield) - (Rom 3:25),

is the Godward aspect, and is that effect of the death of Christ upon the believing sinner which, through divine power, works in him a "thorough change" toward God from enmity and aversion to love and trust. It is never said that God is reconciled. God is propitiated, the sinner reconciled.
