I would express it by saying that God has already taken the initiative, and has completed His part of the reconciliation process by having Christ pay the full penalty for the sin that separated humanity from God -- a payment verified as sufficient through Christ's subsequent resurrection. It is now up to each individual who has appropriated Christ's righteousness through faith by hearing and believing the gospel message to act as God's ambassadors in bringing the news of that reconciliation and salvation to those who have not yet heard it or responded to it, so that they, too, may be saved, and then, in turn, tell others themselves, thereby reconciling them to God, also.
