AMBASSADOR “WORTH CONSIDERING” (Across my desk 5/16/19 from Joel. )
“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us…”
(2 Corinthians 5:20, NIV)
You Are Somebody’s Miracle
God has an assignment for you that nobody else can fulfill. You are His ambassador or representative. You are a part of His divine plan. You have something to offer that nobody else can offer—your gifts, your smile, your love, your passion. It’s easy to get focused on this natural realm and all the things that we need, but do you realize that you are equipped to be somebody else’s miracle? Every single day, we have opportunities to show God’s love and compassion to others. We can meet their needs, bring them healing, and offer hope and encouragement. Every day, we can sow good seed into the lives of others that will reap an eternal harvest. Today, look for ways to be a blessing to someone else. When you step out and pour into others, God will make sure that others pour into you. Let’s continue to work together to bring Him glory and build His kingdom on earth!
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for choosing me and using me. Today I surrender every area of my life to You. Show me ways to be a miracle to others so that my life brings glory to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
It has been very easy for the “church” to purchase ministers who tell them what they would like to hear. Rev. 3::14-22. And at that church Christ Jesus was knocking outside the door trying to be invited into HIS own church?Paul puts it this way: In Matt. 28: 19, Christ Jesus commands us as follows: 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen
Paul puts it this way: And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 2 Cor. 5:18-20
So of course we come up with the idea, well? That is a clergy responsibility. But obviously the Clergy alone can no get the job done.
And in John 17:20-26: Jesus prays this prayer: Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in the.
So from the perspective of Christ Jesus we are all AMBASSADORS and responsible for sharing the GOOD NEWS of the GOSPEL of HIS great love to our sick and dying world. He has placed HIS Glory in our Clay vessels. Does a person drounding care whether one has a theological degree or not, no, they just want the life line. And anyone that has a life line should be trying to help save those who are drounding in sins and trespasses and headed into a black eternity.
Will this cause persecution, you bet it will. Paul also taught us: Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 2 Tim.3:12 Persecution comes with being a blood washed child of God. No persecution, better check your doctrine.
HOW CAN YOU NOT FEEL A DEEP COMPELLING URGE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HELP THE LOST FIND WHAT YOU HAVE FOUND FOR FREE IN GOD’S LOVE. WE TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THE GOOD PHYSICAL STUFF WE FIND FOR FREE, EVERYONE….
OUT OF EVERY 100 SOULS YOU SEE IN COSTCO OR WALLMART OR ON A SCHOOL BUS, JESUS TAUGHT THAT ONLY A FEW (2) OUT OF THE 100 WERE GOING TO MAKE IT INTO GOD’S KINGDOM. THE REST WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN THE BLACKNESS OF DARKNESS FOREVER DUE TO THERE OWN PERSONAL PREFERENCES AS THE CHILDREN OF ADAM.
BUT IF YOU HELP SOMEONE FIND THE LIGHT OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS YOU WILL HAVE MADE A FOREVER FRIEND. THAT IS THE WORK OF AN AMBASSADOR.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<><
