The Daily Grace - Ambassadors of Christ

It is a great responsibility and honor to be appointed as a representative of your company / organization to another, especially your country. As followers of Christ, we are "ambassadors for Christ" (2 Cor. 5:20). Just as God sent Christ to reconcile us to Himself (2 Cor. 5:18), we now have the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:19). Our message is that all can be redeemed in Christ because of God "made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Cor. 5:21).

In response to the reconciling love Jesus offers us, we can share that love with others. Let's take our role seriously. Wherever God places us in this world, He can use s as walking billboards of reconciliation for Jesus Christ. Good news kept silent is no news at all. So, spread the love of Jesus wherever we go. We represent Him.
