So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.2 Corinthians 5:20-21
He Became Sin
Jesus Christ, who was perfect, became the complete opposite: sin. He knew no sin, yet He became sin and endured the wrath of His Father. He did this so we might come to know Him and share the gospel truth with our communities, our nation, and the world. We are His ambassadors. We bear the name of Christ through our salvation, so it is us who carry His name to the world. We speak for Christ; we are His voice, when we plead with our friends, family, and anyone who is lost. He speaks through us if we allow Him to!
Have you allowed the voice of Christ to be silent in your life? Go before Him today and ask the Holy Spirit to give you the words. Luke 12:12 tells us that the Holy Spirit will teach us what we need to say when the time comes. So pray for the people you love who don’t know Him, the world around you and the lost community, and those bringing the gospel to the nations. Be a part of His great work.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for sending your son Jesus to take the place of my sin. You have made me your ambassador. Please give me the words to say to the lost so I can be a light for you. Amen
