Life in the Spirit – Ambassador
II Corinthians 5:16-21 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: The old is gone, the new is come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he committed to us the message of reconciliation. 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. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Think of some people in your relational world whose walk with God is not known to you. With a little bit of investment, prayer, and conversation, God will literally give you words to speak that will help them engage with and understand this message of reconciliation, that they are far from God in their sin and that God has done an amazing thing, so that they might be forgiven.
