Today’s Truth: Ambassadors for Christ

We are God’s message bearers. We carry the greatest gift and message known to mankind: the gift of salvation. 2 Corinthians 5:19-20 calls us His ambassadors, “For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”

God’s message is a powerful message we need to share with the world: He has reconciled man to Himself and because of the death of Jesus on the cross, He no longer counts the sins of man against Him! This is such good news for man! We must share this with the world. However, in order for man to accept this message, he must understand what sin is and that sin separates us from God. This is hard for man to understand. We must share the urgency of this message, but also the beauty of it, knowing that God, in all of His love for mankind, gave up His beloved Son so that we might live with Him in eternity.

He has made us ambassadors, ready to share the message with the dying world, pleading with them to come back to God. We have such a great privilege and pleasure carrying this great message.
