From this morning’s time with the Lord:
2CO 5:15 and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.
2CO 5:20 ¶ Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
BE RECONCILED! Tha is the cry of my heart that wants to find a way to my lips. You have a problem – you are separated from God and He doesn’t desire that. BE RECONCILED TO HIM!
And it takes a while. People, at times, must see it before they’ll ask about it. They want to see it lived out, not just talked about. They want to see the rubber meet the road, not skip town when things get tough. And over time, as it is LIVED they will then want to HEAR.
So the question becomes and remains for me – to whom am I an ambassador right now? What am I doing to live it out and point people to Christ? And what am I saying when the opportunity arises?
