AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST
Main Text: 2 Corinthians 5:20 ‘‘Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us, we implore on Christ’s behalf, he reconciled to God’’ .
God wants us and through everyone on earth to be in favour with Him. But the devil steals this favour through deceit and delusion. That’s why Jesus came to restore favour to God’s people and through God’s people to everyone everywhere.
Part of our inheritance is to have and enjoy favour with God and part of our ministry is to act as Christ Ambassador by drawing others to receive God’s wonderful gift of forgiveness and reconciliation, and to share in His marvelous grace – His unmerited favour.
God wants to restore us to favour with Him so we can act as His Ambassador in the earth. We are therefore to act as missionaries from foreign land. We are aliens and strangers here and we are just passing through (1 Peter 2:11). Through us God makes His appeal to the world to receive His forgiveness, grace and favour.
The bible tells us that not only are we ambassadors for Christ but that we are Kings and Priests unto God (Rev 1:6, 1 Peter 2:9). That’s why we need a different attitude towards ourselves and others. An ambassador of reconciliation has an important responsibility and we should not take this lightly. Brother how well are you fulfilling your commission as Christ ambassador?
WE ARE ROYAL AMBASSADORS, AND DIVINE DIPLOMATS
Prayer: Father God, give me the heart and fortitude to act as your ambassador to all people around me, and to the world.BY BISHOP NGOZI DURUEKE (HE REIGNS CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL) To send your testimony, write us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
