We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
(2 Corinthians 5:20)
Christ’s ambassadors – what a glorious and humble calling! Jesus loves us, and trusts us enough to carry on His ministry here on earth. We are His partners in saving the world, not through any merit or strength of our own, but through His grace to reconcile us to God.
In this new relationship we have roles and responsibilities depending on our gifts and our call. All of us have something to offer for the work of the kingdom, and Christ is counting on us to accomplish our mission, individually and collectively. Let God work through you that our brothers and sisters might know Him better.
Gracious God, we are called to be part of Your plan, the tools You use here on earth to work Your will. May we be willing and useful in the spread of the Good News. Amen.
