When… Jesus was Challenged for Being Graceful
“So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making His appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20
Here’s the plan. God intends for you to be an ambassador, a representative for Christ. How’s that sound?
An ambassador speaks “for” the one they represent. The words of an ambassador are taken to be the world of the one they represent.
Do you know what the words of Jesus are? Are you prepared to speak with understanding of God’s mission for salvation? Do you have the heart of Jesus for humanity? Has your heart been shaped and molded by the grace of God which you have received from the Him Who is the overflowing font of mercy? Has the truth of God’s Word brought you to your knees to see how far and wide and deep and high is the love of God? Have you come to the Father acknowledging your unworthiness to have His robe of righteousness put around your shoulders? When God calls you “beloved child” does it make your heart jump? Have you sung the song Amazing Grace and know that this is your life’s song?
This is what prepares you to be an ambassador for Christ. God wants you to use your life, your words, your relationships, your hurt, your successes, your failures, everything of your life. Be who you are and invite people to know the love of God in Jesus!
