II Corinthians 5:20-21

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

AMBASSADOR: Authorized representative or messenger. Traveling abroad as ambassadors of goodwill. Under care of homeland.

  • Two Important things to remember as and Ambassador of Christ.
    • We need to be at EASE
      • Philippians 4: 19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
      • Learn to be content
      • Are you at ease or diseased?
    • We need to be ATRACTING
      • II Corinthians 5:18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation
      • Whom are you reconciling?
      • Attracting or detracting

“If we’re going to impact our world in the name of Jesus, it will be because people like you and me took action in the power of the Spirit. Ever since the mission and ministry of Jesus, God has never stopped calling for a movement of “Little Jesuses” to follow him into the world and unleash the remarkable redemptive genius that lies in the very message we carry.
